Stellar Winds: Solar-like stars (main sequence and pre-main sequence) & low-mass stars: magnetised coronal winds, rotating outflows, structure of the coronal magnetic field, angular momentum loss, magnetic interaction between planets and the host star, accretion disks.
Exoplanetary Magnetic Fields: Formation of bow shocks due to magnetic interaction between planets and the host star. Radio emission through electron-cyclotron maser instability. Escaping atmospheres in exoplanets.
Magnetohydrodynamics Waves: Cool supergiant stars: models of winds driven by Alfven waves, wind heating by dissipation of Alfven waves, charged dust-wave interaction.
