Current Research Interests:
Fusion, space and astrophysical plasma physics:

  • The physics of fusion-born ion populations in magnetically confined plasmas
  • Ion cyclotron emission, and what can be inferred from it
  • Modelling and interpreting data from turbulent and nonlinear plasma phenomena
  • Generic questions at the interface of different subfields of plasma physics
  • Links to the science of complex systems.
