- About PSI
Dr. Tamara Rogers investigates the details of the solar dynamo, sunspot cycle and internal rotation of the Sun, as well as the nature of angular momentum transport and magnetic field generation in other stars and planets. She pursues these objectives by developing hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of stellar and planetary interiors. Using numerical codes she has developed, she has carried out two- and three-dimensional simulations (2d box, 2d cylinder, 3d sphere) of the solar interior, the interiors of massive stars and the atmospheres of giant planets.
Dr. Roger received her PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics in 2006 from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the High Altitude Observatory, NCAR, Boulder. In 2008, she joined the faculty of the Department of Planetary Sciences, University of Arizona. She joined the permanent science staff of PSI in 2014.
2011, National Academy of Sciences Frontiers of Science Fellow
