I’m a post doctoral researcher working on the MAGPIE pulsed-power generator (1.4 MA, 250 ns). My research interests include: X-Ray driven plasma ablation experiments, laboratory astrophysics, and diagnostic development. 

The diagnostics with which I work most frequently are: Optical Thomson scattering, X-Ray self emission imaging, and X-Ray continuum spectroscopy.
