Seth Davidovits is a student in the PhD program, working with Professor Nat Fisch. He completed his undergraduate work at Columbia University, graduating as valedictorian of the Columbia Engineering class of 2010. Davidovits held a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship from 2010-2014.
His thesis work studies the effects of compression on flows and turbulence in plasmas, with an eye towards improving Z-pinch and laser driven intertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments. His research interests include: viscous and kinetic effects in ICF, turbulence, numerical methods, and parallel computing.
