Eliot is a third year undergraduate student at Columbia majoring in applied physics. He intends to pursue a graduate degree in plasma physics and contribute to the realisation of fusion as a source of clean energy. Aside from plasma, Eliot enjoys ski racing, flying airplanes, playing guitar, and travelling.
Research Focus: Eliot is currently writing a coil-plasma inductance simulation for the HBT-EP tokamak. This will be incorporated in a PID feedback loop to control horizontal plasma instabilities. He is also disassembling the CLM experiment.
