Mykola Gordovskyy is a researcher in solar and heliospheric physics. After receiving a Ph.D. from the University of Bradford, he held postdoctoral positions at the University of Sheffield and Manchester before becoming a Senior Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire. Mykola's main area of expertise is the physics of hot magnetised plasma at the Sun and interplanetary space (the heliosphere). His research focuses on the acceleration and transport of particles in solar flares and their effects on the heliosphere and space weather. He is also interested in stellar activity and stellar flares, as well as laboratory plasma.
Mykola is leading a collaborative project on observationally-driven computational modelling of solar flares, aimed to explain how solar energic particles escape the solar corona, and what determines their properties in interplanetary space. In addition, he is involved in the study of solar radio emission using LOFAR, where he uses the morphological properties of low-frequency radio sources to map the properties of the upper solar corona.
Mykola Gordovskyy teaches Data Science (Module Leader of the 'Fundamentals of Data Science' module), as well as Machine Learning.
