I am a Research Associate in the Centre for Inertial Fusion Studies (CIFS), working in computational High Energy Density Physics. My research covers Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) and Magneto-Inertial Fusion (MIF). For ICF, I model experiments carried out on the NIF laser at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. For MIF, I study experiments carried out on the Z machine at Sandia National Laboratories.
