Long-Lasting Solar Coherent Radio Bursts and Implications for Solar–Stellar Connection
Discoveries of exo-auroral radio emission in the last two decades have led to an ongoing paradigm shift––many highly circularly polarized intense radio bursts detected in a variety of low-mass stars are likely signatures of auroral activities rather than flare-driven magnetic activities. Such discoveries have opened a new window in probing the magnetic field in stellar/substellar/
Dr. Sijie Yu received his B.Sc. in Geophysics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2010, and completed his Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. Dr. Yu joined the solar radio group at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2016. He was appointed as a Research Assistant Professor at NJIT in June 2020. Dr. Yu’s research interests focus on energy release in different solar activity levels. As a team member of the Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA), he is one of the main developers of EOVSA data calibration and imaging pipeline. He is also a key team member for commissioning Jansky VLA for solar observing at P and C band with ultrafast dump rates.
