Thomas Goffrey

Position: Associate Professor

Research Interests: My research focusses on collaborative computational physics projects. Arranged by approximately increasing length scale I currently contribute to the widely used EPOCH PIC code, the radiation-hydrodynamics ALE code Odin, the exoplanet code ECLIPS3D, the coronal physics code LARE3D, and the stellar physics code MUSIC. Specifically I am interested in developing implementations of non-ideal MHD, radiation transport, and novel time-integration algorithms.

Teaching: I currently run PX917, the computational plasma physics module within the HetSys CDT. I also supervise final year projects focussing on optimising laser profiles for inertial confinement fusion experiments using the Freyja code. Please contact me if interested.
