Dr. Pallavi Trivedi is an Associate Research Physicist at the 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 the PhD tenure, she investigated the dynamics of wave-particles interaction and chirp dynamics associated with fast ion driven instabilities by generalizing and upgrading the Vlasov-Poisson based on Piecewise Parabolic Method (VPPM) Code by including kinetic ions and weak dissipative effects/collisions.

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). Her current research focuses on core-edge coupling of gyrokinetic models, and she is working in the XGC group together with Prof. Choong-Seock Chang and Dr. Julien Dominski.
