Priyanjana Sinha is an Associate Research Physicist in the Theory Department at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. She did her Ph.D at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Greifswald, Germany. Her research focussed on edge and scrape off-layer physics modeling for Wendelstein 7-X and has developed numerical techniques to tackle the challenge of power and particle exhaust in the fusion device.
At Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, she is working with Dr. Nate Ferraro on the extended magnetohydrodynamic code M3D-C1 to understand the role of Resonant Magnetic Perturbation (RMP) on Edge Localized Modes (ELM) suppression in tokamaks. She aims to develop a transport model that can accurately predict the ELMs behavior with RMP during experiments.
