I am interested in investigating the dynamics of confined fluids and plasmas using both computational and analytical tools. My past research has focused on confined stratified hydrodynamics which has needed massive compute to explore the parameter space of initial conditions. My future research involves analyzing the effect of the magnetic confinement geometries of stellarators on the plasma flow, specifically turbulence generation and mode excitation/interaction. Plasma has an increased level physics necessary to simulate over fluids, and will demand vast computational resources beyond by classical fluid studies. Thus I find it keen to broaden my understanding of the cutting edge computational tools that will make my results in plasma more attainable.
