I work on kinetic simulation in the high energy density plasma group. My research areas include

  • Vlasov Fokker Planck models
  • Electromagnetic Particle-In-Cell Simulation
  • Ion Kinetics
  • Relativistic Electron Transport
  • Collisions
  • Simulation Techniques
  • Laser-Plasma Interactions
  • Kinetic effects in z-pinch plasmas
