Cyrus Abari
ASP/EOL
Technical University of Denmark My main interest lies in the cross-deciplinary area of optics, photonics, and radio systems where advances in more mature areas such as wireless communications, radars, and atom cooling and trapping can be adopted to design compact, robust, and high-performance optical remote sensing instruments. Instrumentation for remote sensing of temperature, wind, and pressure are of primary interest to me. TBD abari unofficial

Feng Chen
ASP/HAO
University of Goettingen I plan to collaborate with Matthias Rempel in HAO and to build realistic models for flux emergence and formation of active region corona. By treating the proper coronal energy balance, we can synthesise observables from the models that are directly comparable with real observations. This comparison will help us to better understand the energy input into the corona and the coronal dynamics. TBD TBD unofficial
