Vinícius Duarte obtained his PhD in 2017 from the University of São Paulo. After a postdoc at PPPL, he moved to the research staff in 2020. His research is focused on the resonant interaction between fast ions and Alfvénic modes in tokamaks via numerical and analytical modeling. His current research interests include the prediction of the nonlinear evolution of Alfvénic modes, whole-device transport modeling using a quasilinear approach, wave chirping and nonlinear partial differential equations.
