Current grants:
2016-2019, 3-year grant entitled "Instability of magnetized jets in the solar atmosphere" jointly with two Co-Is from Ilia State University, Georgia. The grant is funded by Georgia's Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation under Collaborative Research Project Call (compatriots call) 2016
http://www.rustaveli.org.ge/en/Ongoing-calls/page/1167. This funds 3 PhD studentships based in Georgia but actively working with the PI from QMUL, plus research costs for all six grant participants. The proposal was the highest ranking in natural sciences out of the 38 proposals submitted.
