Research interests:

Dr Rekha Jain works in the field of solar physics in which one studies various phenomena that occur on the Sun. She is interested in:
  • investigating the effects of magnetism on the oscillations.
  • studying wave propagation through gravitationally stratified atmospheres.
  • resonant modes of magnetic loops in the sun’s corona.
  • understanding how the Sun's outer atmosphere is heated to million degrees.
  • modelling of magnetic reconnection and nanoflare heating.
  • numerical simulation of forced magnetic reconnection.
