Assistant Research Scientist, Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering
Dr. Lulu Zhao is an assistant research scientist in the Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering. Her research focus is the modelling of the acceleration and transport of energetic particles using M-FLAMPA (multiple-field-line-advection-model with particle acceleration). The M-FLAMPA model extract magnetic field lines from the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) simulations of the background solar wind solution through SWMF (space weather frame work). Along those magnetic field lines, the particle transport and acceleration are modelled by solving the particle transport equations.
