Henrique Oliveira Miller
Position title: PhD Student
Henrique joined HSX as a graduate student in 2020. He received Bachelor’s degrees in math and electrical engineering at the University of Alaska Anchorage, where he used the PIC code Tech-X VSIM to study a multipole plasma trap. Now he studies turbulence and transport over a range of HSX magnetic topologies. He analyzes experimental confinement in these configurations and runs the gyrokinetic code GENE. He also works on the CHERS diagnostic and a thermocouple-Langmuir probe.
