Dr Rupak Mukherjee is Associate Research Physicist at Theory department, PPPL, Princeton University, USA. He has obtained his PhD in 2019 from Institute for Plasma Research, India. His thesis topic was the study of turbulence, flows and magnetic field generation in plasmas using a Magnetohydrodynamic model.

He is currently working in the "Gkeyll" project [a discontinuous-Galerkin method-based code for simulation of instabilities and turbulence in magnetically confined plasma devices as well as space and astrophysical plasmas with Prof Greg Hammett and Dr Ammar Hakim. He is primarily contributing to improve the code's capability to resolve magnetic null points in general geometry.
