Dieter Boeyaert

Position title: Scientist


Dieter Boeyaert joined the HSX team as a scientist in October 2023. He focusses on designing a resilient divertor for HSX using field-line tracing (FLARE) and advanced plasma edge codes (EMC3-EIRENE), and on studying the plasma edge by comparing simulations with experimental data. Dieter joined the UW-Madison as a postdoc in 2021 working on EMC3-EIRENE modeling of the W7-X stellarator after obtaining a PhD from the KU Leuven (Belgium) in collaboration with the Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany) about SOLPS-ITER simulations of the EAST tokamak.
