Anusha Bhasari

I studied pure mathematics for my masters studies, at the University of Mysore, Karnataka, India. After my M.Sc., I did Ph.D. with Prof. K. N. Nagendra, on the topic "Advanced numerical methods for polarized line radiative transfer theory", at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Benagaluru, India.

After my Ph.D., I joined the group of Prof. Sami Solanki here at MPS. I was fortunate enough to get opportunity to work on various projects, most of which were a journey of learning experience. I have been at MPS, first as an Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral fellow and then, a regular post-doctoral fellow of the Max-Planck institute.

Research Interests

  • Scattering polarization and radiative transfer in different geometries (spherical, multi-dimensional)
  • Statistical data analysis for understanding magnetic flux distribution on the photosphere
  • Time-dependent energy transfer for modeling solar chromosphere
  • Numerical radiative transfer for understanding solar photosphere
  • Publications
