I’m interested in the different manifestations of magnetic activity in low-mass stars and brown dwarfs and how these change with the physical properties of the stars. This is an especially interesting question at the cross section between stars and brown dwarfs which host a mix of important atmospheric and chemical processes in their cool atmospheres including strong magnetism and cloud formation. Although I primarily use spectroscopy to delve into these topics, I’ve worked with data ranging from UV to radio wavelengths.
