Ricky Egeland


In 2017 I obtained my Ph.D. in physics from Montana State University with my dissertation "Long-term Variability of the Sun in the Context of Solar-Analog Stars." I am currently a Project Scientist working at the High Altitude Observatory in Boulder, Colorado. My research is on observational records of the solar cycle and spectropolarimetric observations and inversions.

I received my B.S. in physics in 2003 from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities followed by seven years of software development work for the Compact Muon Solenoid project at CERN. After leaving CERN in 2010 I worked briefly at the Observatório Nacional in Rio de Janeiro before coming to Montana to resume my studies.
