Dr. Jess’ research interests are in the areas of solar physics.
He works with multi-wavelength observations of the solar atmosphere acquired using high-resolution ground- and space-based observatories. His work focuses on the propagation and dissipation characteristics of MHD waves and oscillations as they propagate through the solar atmosphere, and he investigates their energy dissipation in order to constrain atmospheric heating mechanisms.
He has authored/co-authored more than 60 publications in refereed literature, and my research has attracted funding from a number of sources, including the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council, the Royal Society, NASA, the European Union (FP7 & H2020), Randox Laboratories Ltd. and Invest NI.
