Assoz. Prof. Mag. Dr. rer.nat. Manuela Temmer
Manuela Temmer earned her PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Graz in 2004. She completed postdoctoral research fellowships at the Hvar Observatory of the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and was a Senior Research Fellow at the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory in Palo Alto (USA). In 2010 she was appointed as an assistant professor, successfully defended her habilitation thesis in 2015, and was promoted to the rank of "Associate Professor" at the University of Graz by October 2016. Here she leads the Heliospheric Physics Team of the Solar & Heliospheric Research Group (click for more details on the scientific research projects of the team).
Her research interest is in the area of solar and heliospheric physics focusing on flares, coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and their space weather impact. She works toward understanding the physical processes of CME acceleration, subsequent evolution in interplanetary space, and interaction with the ambient solar wind. CMEs and flares are the most violent activity phenomena of the Sun affecting physical properties of near Earth space as well as human and robotic explorers across the solar system.
