Ferdinand van Wyk

D.Phil Candidate

I am working with Dr. Alexander Schekochihin and Dr. Edmund Highcock on ways of eliminating ion scale plasma turbulence from tokamak plasmas.

In particular, with ever increasing computing resources, I am interested in improving the efficiency and scaling of major plasma turbulence simulation codes. The ultimate goal is not only to decrease computation time and allow larger parameter scans but to allow multiscale simulations at both the ion and electron Larmor radii, which would represent a major step forward in turbulence simulations.
