Dr. Raouafi's main area of interest is the study of the dynamic solar corona via the analysis of spectral and imaging observations and theoretical interpretation of coronal emissions. His primary contributions have been in the area of solar magnetic fields, coronal polarimetry, coronal plumes, jets, CMEs, solar energetic particles, and cometary physics. He has developed theoretical models for the heating and acceleration of different species in the fast solar wind, forward modeling of coronal polarization in the UV and IR wavelength ranges. His analysis of coronal observations led to in-depth insight into the physics underlying the formation and evolution of different coronal structures.

Dr. Raouafi's research spread over a wide range of solar and heliospheric areas, which will allow him to actively contribute to achieve the science goals of this proposal. He is also involved in the Solar Probe Plus project. He is a member of the JHUAPL science team of the SPP project and the point of contact of the WISPR instrument.
