Research Experience

General Atomics, San Diego, CA
Research Scientist, December 2011 – Present
Research in magnetic confinement fusion concentrating on energetic ion transport in tokamaks. Responsible for operation of fast ion loss detector (FILD) diagnostic at the DIII-D tokamak. Additional work in diagnostic development including the gamma ray imager (GRI) and implementation of full-band ion cyclotron emission (ICE) measurements. Physics coordinator for spatial calibrations conducted with a coordinate measuring arm at DIII-D.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA
Postdoctoral Research, December 2010 – November 2011
Supervisor: R.S. Granetz, Plasma Science and Fusion Center, MIT
Postdoctoral research at the Alcator C-Mod National Tokamak Facility conducted as a fellow of the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). This research focused on the design and construction of a Fast Ion Loss Detector (FILD) for the study of Alfvén eigenmodes and ion-cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) on Alcator C-Mod [Pace, RSI 2012]. Collaboration with the DIII-D tokamak included the addition of a second FILD, experiments concerning the turbulent transport of energetic ions, and other energetic ion topics.

University of California, Irvine, CA
Postdoctoral Research, January 2009 – November 2010
Supervisor: W.W. Heidbrink, UCI Department of Physics and Astronomy
Fusion energy research studying energetic particle phenomena in tokamak plasmas. Primary topics include energetic ion transport due to microturbulence and MHD modes [Pace, NF 2011, PPCF 2011]. Collaborated in the design and implementation of a new FILD on the DIII-D tokamak [Pace, RSI 2010]. Additional diagnostic experience obtained with the Fast Ion Dα (FIDA) charge exchange system. Modeling efforts include collaboration on gyrokinetic simulations of fast ion transport with the GYRO, GTC, and TGYRO/TGLF codes and teams.
