Our team is multidisciplinary, covering a broad range of expertise in magnetism of the Sun and cool stars. Our research is based on spectro-polarimetric measurements, Stokes profiles modeling, MHD simulations, Big Data analysis with machine learning and stochastic thermodynamics tools, as well as laboratory and field measurements.
