The dynamics of solar magnetoconvection spans a wide range of spatial and temporal scales and extends from the interior to the corona. Using 3D radiative MHD simulations, we investigate the complex interactions that drive various phenomena observed on the solar surface, in the low atmosphere, and in the corona. We present results of our recent simulations of coronal dynamics driven by underlying magnetoconvection and atmospheric processes, using the 3D radiative MHD code StellarBox (Wray et al. 2018). In particular, we focus on the evolution of thermodynamic properties and energy exchange across the different layers from the solar interior to the corona.
