EUROfusion project

  • EUROfusion TSVV project, “Theory and Simulations Verification and Validation (TSVV) on MHD Transients”, including 25 contributors (PI: Matthias Hoelzl, IPP Garching), 2021-2025.
  • Workpackage Tokamak Exploitation (WPTE). The project which contributes European tokamaks such as ASDEX, TCV etc. 2021-2025.
  • Workpackage JT-60SA (WPSA). The project which contributes the next generation Japanese fusion device, JT-60SA. 2014-2025.

We contribute EUROfusion which is the largest European fusion research programme for Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe (2021-2027), funded by the Euratom Association. We are contributing multiple workpackages (WPs) which are coordinated for respective objectives. Currently, we contribute the WP of TSVV project which fosters the MHD physics with JOREK code which is one of the most respected MHD code in the world. I take the lead of one of the task branches, interaction between pellet and MHD dynamics in self-consistent manner. I participate the non-linear MHD modelling of ASDEX (Germany), JET (UK), JT-60SA (Japan) for the relevant WPs


Plan Nacional

Plan Nacional PID2020-116822RB-I00 “Impacto del flujo de cizalladura en el transporte de partículas en plasmas de fusión confinados magnéticamente (Unraveling the role of sheared flows for particle transport in magnetically confined fusión plasmas)” (Acronym: FLOW-FIMP), (2021-2024).

This project is granted by Spanish research grant (Plan Nacional de Investigacion) for 2021-2024, with joint group with UPC and Univ. Seville. The goal of the project is to understand the MHD dynamics and associated particle transport in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak and to contribute to a basic physics understanding for ITER. The expected results achieved in this project will significantly contribute to a better understanding of wave-particle interactions in magnetically confined plasmas. This research project contributes to Spanish and European excellence and competitiveness by combining cutting-edge diagnostic techniques with state-of-the-art numerical tools to shed light on fundamental wave-particle interactions in fusion plasmas.

Supercomputing Project (HPC-Project)

The numerical simulations of non-linear plasma dynamics require a large computing resources, ~3000 CPUs or even more, in parallel computation. I lead the projects as the Principal Investigator which allow to use the computation resources such as PRACE, EUROfusion HPC projects, Spanish Supercomputing Programs named RES (Red Espanola de Supercomputaci on Resources Area).
