Priyansh Lunia

Graduate Student

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.
