Research Interests

Experimental and theoretical research on plasma propulsion of spacecraft and nuclear fusion in the field-reversed configuration. The fusion research focuses on the development of clean, safe, and small fusion power plants, ones suitable for a distributed (rather than central-station) electrical power system.
