Solar Physics journal welcomes Inigo Arregui

Introducing our new Editor-in-Chief to succeed Michael Wheatland

Publisher and editors of the journal Solar Physics welcome Iñigo Arregui, who is taking over the responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief from Michael Wheatland, who has served on this post from 2016–2021.

We gratefully acknowledge Michael Wheatland’s contributions to Solar Physics and the community as a whole. Iñigo Arregui is joining the continuing Editors-in-Chief Lidia van Driel-Gesztelyi, John Leibacher, and Cristina H. Mandrini.

Iñigo Arregui completed his PhD in 2003 and has been a researcher at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) since 2012. He has conducted research in Spain (Universitat de les Illes Balears and Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias) and Belgium (K.U. Leuven). He also had visiting professor positions at ISAS/JAXA (Japan) and K.U. Leuven.

His research interests are focused on the magnetic structuring of the solar atmosphere, MHD waves in coronal structures, coronal seismology, coronal wave heating, and the application of Bayesian inference methods.

The publisher would like to thank all researchers who have applied for the open position as Solar Physics EiC, and also the Solar Physics Advisory Board who formed a selection committee that made recommendations to the publisher.
