Who am I

Dr. Hakan Önel

I am a theoretical physicist with expertise in plasma and flare physics (e.g. I studied Solar Energetic Particles related topics, such as, electron propagation through coronal plasma and electron acceleration processes).

As AIP's local instrument scientist and project manager for AIP's hardware commitments to ESA's Solar Orbiter mission I significantly contributed to the Imager unit of the Spectrometer/Telescope for Imaging X-rays (STIX) instrument.

Since 2019, as head of the Technical Section I have been helping AIP's scientists to realise their instrumentation projects.
