Feng Chen

Feng Chen is a scientific visitor at the High Altitude Observatory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. His research focuses on the emergence of magnetic field from the interior of the Sun to its surface and further to the solar corona, and how the magnetic field gives rise to the brilliant structures and dynamic of the corona observed in the Extreme Ultraviolet wavelength. He uses super computers to carry out magnetohydrodynamic simulations that can produce images looking like the real Sun.
