Priyansh joined the plasma physics PhD program in Fall 2021. He earned his B.S. in Physics from Rice University, where he worked in the ultracold atoms and plasmas lab.
Advisor: Carlos Paz-Soldan
Research Focus: Priyansh’s current research focuses on understanding the access criteria for the suppression of edge-localized modes (ELMs) using resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs). He’s also working on RMP coil optimization for maximizing edge vs. core resonance in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak.
