Biographical sketch

After completing a five-year research project jointly sponsored by Peking University and Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Prof. Hui Tian received his PhD degree from Peking University in 2010. From 2010 to 2012 he was an ASP Postdoc Fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), USA. Then he served as an astrophysicist and a member on the science team of the IRIS mission for over three years at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). He returned to China in 2015, and is now a professor at Peking University.

Research Interests

Prof. Tian is mainly working on solar physics. His research interests include heating mechanisms of the upper solar atmosphere, fine structures in sunspots and flaring regions, plasma diagnostics of solar eruptions and novel techniques for coronal magnetic field measurements. He is also interested in stellar magnetic activity, particularly stellar coronal eruptions and their potential impact on the habitability of exoplanets. In addition, he has been actively promoting EUV telescopes aiming at solar and stellar coronal observations.
