Hi kids! I'm a professor in the physics department. These days I work mostly on the theory of nonneutral plasmas. This involves statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, computer simulation and, of course, plasma physics.
Nonneutral plasmas can be confined in a Penning Trap. A cutaway view of such a Trap is shown above.
My latest research focusses on turbulence in 2D fluid flow and plasmas and crystallization of nonneutral plasmas You can learn a little more about nonneutral plasmas by clicking here.
Here is a link to a web page describing my new textbook, Numerical and Analytical Methods for Scientists and Engineers, using Mathematica
