Profile picture of Juie Shetye



Dr Shetye's main area of research is solar physics. Her main interests lie in observational and theoretical studies of jets found in the solar atmosphere. Her specialization is in the dynamics of small-scale jets that potentially contribute towards the mass and energy transfer across the solar atmosphere. She has a keen interest in developing advance observational techniques, especially at the Dunn Solar Telescope. 

Dr Shetye also manages science operations at the Dunn Solar Telescope, Sunspot Solar Observatory. 

Dr Shetye is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, UK.

Dr Shetye is activate involved in science promotion and outreach. She is a part of Sun Space Arts team that combines art and science to teach space science topic. She has started this initiative in the US, with assistance from Heidi Sanchez at the Sunspot Solar Observatory.  These activities were carried at Girls-Cann school visits and the Alamogordo library. 
Dr Shetye often writes about the Sun in the Las Cruces Sun News. 


Dr Shetye's research is mainly funded by NSF's FDSS Faculty Development in the Space Sciences award (2020-2025). With additional awards from New Mexico Space Grant Consortium (2021,2022).
