I'm a final-year PhD student supervised by Prof. Philippa Browning. My research concerns Coronal Loop models (linear and nonlinear) that incorporate ideal kink instability and Taylor relaxation. The aim of these models is to produce energy-release distributions and thereby show if kink instability could be responsible for coronal heating. More info can be found from this page.

Alternatively, see this research nugget, which has recently (Jun 2011) been published on the UK Solar Physics web site.
