University Of Liverpool

I completed my Master’s degree in Plasma Physics and Fusion Science at the University of Paris-Saclay in France, and I did different internships at the LPP (École Polytechnique) studying drift instabilities in magnetised plasmas, at the IPP Garching in Germany working for the ASDEX Upgrade control team, and at the IRFM-CEA Cadarache for my master thesis based on the analysis of scaling laws’ deviations at JET.

Now as a PhD student into the Fusion CDT program I will study the effect of self-organisation in magnetised plasmas, the phenomena involving instabilities related to coherent rotating spokes and its properties in highly ionised plasmas, at the University of Liverpool supervised by Dr Kirsty McKay and Prof James Bradley.
