Chen Zhao

Dr. Chen Zhao, 赵忱, received Ph. D. in 2018 from Zhejiang University, studying the physics of trapped electron mode and turbulent transport in tokamaks, advised by Prof. Yong Xiao.

The initial assignment here will be to work closely with Dr. Stephen Jardin and his research group in carrying out a program of computational and theoretical research associated with predicting runaway electron dynamics during disruptions in tokamaks. This will include but is not limited to the addition of a runaway-electron package to the M3D-C1 code and applying it to model runaway electron production and confinement during tokamak disruptions.
