Dr. Seth Davidovits is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University. He holds a Department of Energy Fusion Energy Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship and carries out research at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. His primary research focus is on the behavior of turbulence in compressing systems, with applications in a range of laboratory and natural settings. These settings include inertial-confinement-fusion experiments, Z-pinch experiments, and astrophysical plasmas, such as molecular clouds.
Dr. Davidovits earned his Ph. D. in plasma physics from Princeton University. He was awarded the 2018 Marshall N. Rosenbluth Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award, and was also named a 2018 Frederick A. Howes Scholar in Computational Science. He held a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship from 2010 - 2014. He completed his undergraduate work at Columbia University, graduating as valedictorian of the Columbia Engineering class of 2010.
