IAA Zoom Lecture Weds 23rd June – Dr Samuel Grant, QUB

The Diverse Future of Solar Physics

We are at the advent of an exciting era in the study of our nearest star, thanks to the emerging signs of a new solar cycle, alongside a varied fleet of cutting-edge observing suites set to begin operations in the next decade. In this talk, the implications of entering a new solar cycle will be discussed, including the current conjecture on how this cycle will develop.

There will also be discussion of the space and ground-based observatories being developed world wide that will provide an unprecedented insight into the dynamic physics of the Sun.

Finally, I will present some of the earthly applications of our developments in solar physics, focusing on our bio-medical science collaboration here at QUB.

I am an STFC post-doctoral research fellow employed in the Solar Physics group at Queen’s University Belfast, with a focus on wave activity and energy transport in the lower solar atmosphere. I attained my PhD from Queen’s in 2017 under Dr. David Jess, after my undergraduate studies at Glasgow University, and until September 2020 was employed as a lead researcher on the industrial collaboration to advance bio-medical science through the application of astronomical techniques at QUB/Randox Laboratories.   

Paul Evans is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
