My name is Caroline Evans and I’m joining the APS department for the 2023-2024 school year. My primary research interests lie in the intersection of theoretical and computational astrophysics. Currently, I am working on the coronal loop heating problem via modeling and analysis of the magnetohydrodynamics of the solar corona. My previous work has spanned the stellar lifetime from molecular clouds to core-collapse supernovae. But, my research at CU builds on the coronal loop heating work I did at the joint NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and University of Alabama in Huntsville heliophysics REU.

When I can, I enjoy teaching and communicating about physics and our universe with the wider community. In my free time, I like to play the trumpet, bake, and explore local coffee shops.
