in and around Coronal Holes”
September 2006–June 2009: M.Sc. in Space Physics, University of Science andTechnology of China, Hefei, China. Received in June, 2009.

Fields of Research Interest
Solar physics: observations of the source regions of the solar wind; how small-scaletransients in the solar atmosphere contribute to
the dynamic corona; non-LTE modellingof the solar atmosphere.
(1) Study of small-scale transient brightenings (coronalbright points and X-ray jets) in and around coronal holes. The research uses observationsfrom
Solar Ultraviolet Measurement of Emitted Radiation (SUMER) aboard the Solarand Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), Solar Optical Telescope (SOT),
X-ray Telescope(XRT) and Extreme-Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) aboard Hinode to study thephysical parameters and magnetic evolution of
tens of the transient brightenings. This project produces two A&A publications and one conference proceeding article.
(2) Observational study of a GOES C4.3 ﬂare with ﬁlament eruption. This work used observations from the Interferometric BIdimensional Spectrometer (IBIS)
and Rapid Oscillations inthe Solar Atmosphere (ROSA) installed on the Dunn Solar Telescope at the National Solar Observatory, and the Atmospheric
Imaging Assembly (AIA) and Helioseismic andMagnetic Imager (HMI) aboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). This work is currently continuing.
(3) Take part in a study of “Statical Analysis of Small EllermanBomb Events”, which was using observations taken by IBIS, ROSA and HMI.
This workZhenghua Huang 2 has been submitted to Solar Physics.
(4) Take part in a numerical study of magneticreconnection resulting from ﬂux emergence. This work has been published on A&A.
(5)Observation and modelling of the outﬂow region at the edge of active region. This work is a collaboration with a group in Denmark and is on-going.
(6) Begin to learn thenon-LTE radiation transfer calculation in the stellar atmosphere.
July 2005–July 2009: Used spectral observations taken by SOHO/SUMER to
(1) statistically study morphology and velocities of blinkers in the solar polar coronal holes;
(2) statistically analyse non-Gaussian line proﬁles from the emission in the solar transitionregion;
(3) measure the instrumental broadening of the detector B of Solar UltravioletMeasurement of Emitted Radiation.
These works had built up my M.Sc. and B.Sc.theses.
Have taken part in an observational project in National Solar Observatory at Sac PeakNew Mexico for 10 days.
