Research Description

Characterization of interpalanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs) as they propagate outward from the Sun through the inner heliosphere. ICMEs are massive ejections of solar plasma and energy resulting from explosive magnetic reconnection near the surface of the Sun.New photocatalytically-enhanced methods for converting carbon dioxide into fuels, and synthesize ammonia from air and water.
