High-fidelity continuum kinetic simulations – a frontier in plasma modeling

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley

Genia Vogman Computational Scientist Abstract: Plasma, the fourth state of matter, is an important medium in space physics and fusion energy applications. Its unique multi-scale properties give rise to complex behavior that is difficult to predict. In regimes where plasma particles collide infrequently, commonly used magnetohydrodynamic descriptions fail and kinetic physics of particle-particle and particle-wave

Planetary nuclear spectroscopy

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley

Mauricio Ayllon Unzueta NASA Postdoctoral Fellow (NPP) Abstract: Planetary nuclear spectroscopy is a blanket term used to describe gamma ray and neutron spectroscopy of planetary surfaces. Spectrometers of this kind are able to measure the bulk elemental composition of a planetary object from different platforms such as orbiters and landers. In this talk, I will

Multi-scale modeling of Radiation Therapy – Bridging the gap from Physics to Biology

Via Zoom

Jan Schuemann, Ph.D. (he/him/his) Associate Professor Associate Director of Physics Research Head of the Multi-scale Monte-Carlo Modeling Lab Abstract: Modeling approaches offer a strong tool to understand mechanisms of complex processes, allowing us to probe correlations that are not accessible with experimental techniques. My lab uses the Monte Carlo method to investigate the effects of radiation
