Interactions in Plasma Turbulence at Kinetic Scales
The project is in the field of plasma physics, focusing on the analysis and modelling of plasma turbulence at kinetic scales. As a strongly nonlinear phenomenon, turbulence is responsible for the coupling of scales in a system. For plasmas, these couplings involve interactions with the electromagnetic fields. Moreover, as magnetically confined fusion and astrophysical plasmas are deemed to be collisionless, these interactions require a kinetic description to be fully captured. Other kinetic phenomena, such as Landau Damping and phase space mixing, need now to be considered.
