Biography: Tadhg’s research interests are focused on the space weather link between the Sun and the Earth. After finishing an undergraduate degree in Physics and Astrophysics, Tadhg began work on a coronal hole segmentation algorithm named ‘CHIMERA’, which identifies and extracts coronal hole boundaries and properties. This algorithm is run real-time on the solarmonitor.org/chimera website. Following this algorithm, Tadhg has focused his work on linking the properties of these solar coronal holes with the properties of the solar wind to build a predictive model for recurring space weather storms.
