Dr. Pallavi Trivedi is an Associate Research Physicist at Theory department, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), Princeton University, USA. She received her Ph.D. in 2019 from Homi Bhabha National Institute in India, for her work on "Driven Phase Space Structures In A Vlasov-Poisson Plasma" conducted at the Institute For Plasma Research, India. During this work, she generalized and upgraded the Vlasov-Poisson based on Piecewise Parabolic Method (VPPM) Code by including kinetic ions and weak dissipative effects/collisions This work included both theory and computer simulations in Vlasov-Poisson plasmas to study the physics of phase space structure formation in the driven-dissipative 1D systems.

At PPPL, she is involved in the “High-Fidelity Whole Device Modeling of Magnetically Confined Fusion Plasmas” project, a part of the Department of Energy Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and is working in the XGC group together with Prof. Choong-Seock Chang and Dr. Julien Dominski.
