Prabhat KumarPostdoctoral Researcher, Applied Mathematics and Computational Research Division
AffiliationI am a postdoctoral researcher in Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Research Interests and Previous ResearchMy research interests include mathematical modeling of physics processes, numerical algorithms for complex PDE systems, and high performance computing. During my PhD research, I worked on development and implementation of numerical algorithms in the parallel, relativistic, 3D electromagnetic ParticleinCell code called SPACE. We used SPACE code for modeling and simulation of laserplasma interactions and wakefield acceleration experiments at the Accelerator Test Facility of Brookhaven National Laboratory. During my oneyear postdoc at Stanford University, I worked on modeling laserparticle coupled beam propgation for space propulsion systems and kinetic modeling of low temperature magnetized plasmas to study microturbulence in various plasma discharges and anomalous transport in Hall thrusters. Current ResearchI am currently working with the ARTEMIS and WarpX teams. Details to follow... Selected Publications
