Position: PhD Student
Topic: Kinetic simulations of Ion Cyclotron Emission (ICE) in plasmas
Background: Theoretical Physics (MPhys), University of York, 2015
My research focuses on the collective radiative instability Ion Cyclotron Emission (ICE). The excitation
mechanism for ICE is the magnetoacoustic cyclotron instability, which is a potential diagnostic for
alpha particle confinement in ITER. Using large scale high performance computing facilities, I employ
numerical simulations of the nonlinear kinetic physics associated with ICE using the Warwick developed
particle-in-cell (PIC) code EPOCH in collaboration with researchers from the UK, Japan, and Korea.
My GitHub page includes tutorials for various programming languages. So far there are tutorials for: Fortran, C++, BASH, Python, MPI, OpenMP. There's also other miscellaneous sutff.
