Research Interests

The focus of our research is on large-scale instabilities in tokamak plasmas. Simulations in particular with the non-linear MHD code JOREK (see here) aim to interpret and predict high temperature plasma dynamics. The focus is on studies of edge localized modes (ELMs), disruptions, vertical displacement events (VDEs), runaway electrons, and mitigation techniques.
