- Stellar physics: convective transport (of heat, different chemical species), convective penetration, convection and turbulence, radiation, stellar evolution
- Dynamo mechanisms: turbulence, energetic structure formation
- MHD turbulence: Lagrangian statistics, tracer particles, energetic particles, turbulence driven by convection
- Magnetic reconnection, nonlinear saturation of magnetic islands and stabilization of tearing modes in tokamaks using electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) and radio frequency heating
I perform simulations on these computer systems: DiRAC Complexity Cluster, DiRAC Cambridge Data Analytic Cluster, ARCHER, Der Norddeutsche Verbund fuer Hoch- und Hoechstleistungsrechnen (HLRN), IFERC-CSC, Hydra at the RZG, SURFsara, UK-MHD Wardlaw MareNostrum (PRACE), Marconi-Fusion (Eurofusion)
Last year I co-organized Dynamics Days Europe, including two minisymposia on Astrophysical Plasmas and Turbulent Dispersion.
Have a look at my recent tokamak visualization published in the 2016 ARCHER Image Calendar.
