Dr Martin Haynes

Name: Martin Haynes

Position: PDRA

Funding: PPARC

Research Interests:
Magnetic reconnection as a fundamental plasma process and its effects in the solar corona.[1]
3D MHD simulations of confined flares and their observational signatures.[2]
Emergence of flux tubes from the convection zone to the corona including a partially ionized layer.[3]

PhD Thesis:
"Block Adaptive Mesh refinement for a Lagrangian Remap Code"
I converted an already existing Lagrangian remap MHD code to contain block adaptive mesh refinement. This is a technique which allows the fluid simulation to place more points in regions of interest thus better allocating the available resources.
