This post-doctoral project aims to analyze solar flares and its inhomogeneous environment. Solar events observed at frequencies that range from 1 to 405 GHz will be investigated by applying techniques that the candidate has been developing in the past few years. These techniques allow a tridimensional description of the magnetic environment where the solar flare occurs, plus the evaluation of the dynamic and distribution evolution of the accelerated electrons and the radio emission that they produce, including full radioactive transfer through the source. Homogeneous models will become obsolete by the new instruments and techniques of solar flare observation, thus this project will help us to understand the present and new observational data and will raise new questions for further investigations.
