  • Working on the development and benchmarking of the dust in tokamaks transport code DTOKS. Focusing on the improvement of its physical model and its integration with a Scrape-off Layer (SOL) modelling code. Working on the study of the impact of dust grains on the SOL.
  • Theoretical study of the physics of the dust-plasma interaction, focusing on charging. Development of the kinetic code Yggdrasil in collaboration with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory with the aim to improve the understanding of the plasma-dust interaction under tokamak conditions.
