Research Interests:
My research about the Sun lies in studying the variations in the structure and dynamics of the Sun over time-scales. I study other stars since I am interested in the properties of stellar materials. The study of stars other than the Sun also allows me to study the structure and evolution of the Galaxy; it also informs my study of the Sun. I specialize in studying solar and stellar properties using data on stellar oscillations.

I'm interested in astrophysical fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodymanics, particularly as it applies to the interior of the sun and other stars. Most of my recent work focuses on high-resolution numerical simulations of convection, turbulence, and shear in the solar interior and the implications all this has for solar dynamo theory and for detectable surface flows such as differential rotation and solar sub-surface weather. I've also done some work on turbulence and waves in interstellar molecular clouds.

My research interests are in the solar physics, astrophysics and nonlinear wave theory. The key word in all my work is a wave (for me, it is something which can propagate somewhere). Particularly, I deal with magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves, which are believed to be responsible for a number of astrophysical phenomena and are observed in the atmosphere of the Sun, solar wind and magnetosphere of the Earth (However, it seems that they can be found everywhere in the Universe, where there is a plasma penetrated by the magnetic field). Propagating through an inhomogeneous, non-stationary, nonlinear and sometimes active medium, such as the space plasma, MHD waves gain extremally interesting new properties leading to a number of amazing physical phenomena, like the existence of solitons, negative energy effects, self-organisation and many others.
