research overview

  • My main interests is the spectropolarimetric diagnostics of the solar atmosphere, that is the inference of physical properties in the solar atmosphere from the observed polarized spectra. To this end, I engage into modeling of the spectral line formation as well into various inference processes that use Bayesian inference, machine learning techniques, etc.
