Current Project: Neoclassical transport in open field lines in tokamaks.

Euichan (의찬) was born and grew up in South Korea. He graduated from Seoul National University with both his undergraduate and master’s degrees, majoring in nuclear engineering. He studied MHD instabilities in a university-scale tokamak called Versatile Experimental Spherical Torus (VEST) at Seoul National University.

After he joined the Princeton plasma physics program, he completed two first-year projects: one on electron cyclotron emission diagnostics in the DIII-D tokamak in San Diego, and the other on plasma material interaction in the Lithium Tokamak eXperiment-β (LTX-β). He is currently working on his second-year theory project, focusing on developing neoclassical transport theory in open field lines in tokamaks.

He is generally interested in experimental work in fusion plasmas, but he is also greatly interested in fundamental plasma physics. He would like to contribute to fusion technology by advancing the physical understanding of plasma-wall interaction and open-field line plasmas, where the most intense transition happens from hot plasma to cold solid.

Euichan can be contacted by email at [email protected], and he is happy to answer any questions about his research or the program.
