Expertise: Solar atmosphere, Sun-Earth Connections, Spicules and Swirls, MHD waves




Dr Shetye's main area of research is solar physics. She main interests lie in observational studies of the solar atmosphere, with a focus is on the dynamic changes that occur in the lower solar atmosphere. In addition, she is working towards developing smart detection methods to understand varying of the solar atmosphere. These techniques when in fruition can be applied to weather patterns, storm patterns across the solar system.
