Fusion Plasma Physics

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced. It has become clear that energy production from fossil fuels is no longer a viable option to ensure a sustainable future. Unfortunately, the bulk of the world's energy production still originates from fossil fuels and the renewable sources of today will not be able to fully replace it.

Fusion power could be the great, sustainable source of energy the world needs. Millions of times higher energy density than coal, completely clean and free of harmful GHG emissions as well as a practically limitless fuel source makes fusion power the greatest candidate for the energy production of tomorrow.

Fusion

The work of my master's thesis at KTH was done within the area of fusion plasma physics. I added a poloidal component to the magnetic field in the FEMIC-code for simulation of ion-cyclotron resonance heating in fusionplasmas.

Master's Thesis - Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan

I feel fortunate and incredibly happy to get to work as a PhD student at the division of plasma physics and fusion energy at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU. To be able to contribute in humanity's quest for the 'holy grail' of energy production feels fantastic and I am truly grateful for having been given the opportunity to do so.
