Dr. Riley studies the large scale structure of the solar corona and inner heliosphere as well as the eruption and evolution of coronal mass ejections, and their interactions with the solar wind. He uses global magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) models to interpret coronal and heliospheric observations in an effort to understand the underlying physical processes at work.
