Research Interest: 

Professor Ulrich is active in the study of the solar interior using theoretical and observational methods. The theoretical studies include analysis of the solar neutrino problem, theoretical helioseismology and solar atmosphere dynamics. Observational studies include the operation of the 150-foot tower on Mt. Wilson and participation in two space helioseismology experiments on the NASA/ESA SOHO Mission. The 150-foot tower project provides access to unique observing facilities and a unique long-term digital database of solar activity extending over two solar cycles. Dr. Ulrich recently used the Mt. Wilson facility to make the first observation and identification of Alfven waves on the solar surface.
