Area of research
Theoretical plasma physics.
Turbulent phenomena that occur in the boundary of fusion devices where, within a few centimetres, the temperature drops from values ten times as high as in the core of the sun to room temperature.
HPC means for me
An essential tool to disentangle the complex physical phenomena at play in fusion devices. This is necessary for optimal ITER operation and DEMO design.
