Name: James Anthony Merrifield

Position: PhD Student.

PhD Supervisor: Sandra Chapman

Funding: EPSRC with a CASE award form UKAEA

Research Interests: The numerical investigation of scaling laws in MHD. The possibility of universal scaling laws in MHD flows exists at length scales small enough to be unaffected by the driving process yet large enough not to be affected by the details of the dissipation process. Studies involve evaluating the effect of intermittency, geometry (2D, 3D) and coherent structures on these scaling laws. Particular attention is paid to coherent structures in the local rate of dissipation.
