Gabriel Dima

Gabriel is an Advanced Study Program Postdoctoral Fellow working at the High Altitude Observatory. His interests are strongly rooted in gaining an improved understanding of the structure and dynamics of the solar corona. More concretely he is currently involved in a number of projects involving:

  1. Interpretation of spectropolarimetric observations of permitted and forbidden coronal emission lines to measure the magnetic field. This is done through expansion of the theoretical understanding of line formation as well as creating new Python visualization tools for polarimetric data through the Sunpy/StokesPy project. 
  2. Exploring machine learning applications to solve old (emission measure inversions) and new (detecting chromospheric signatures of impacting coronal rain) solar physics problems. 
  3. Exploring how virtual reality could be used to improve understanding and interpretation of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) models.
