David Dickinson

Dr David Dickinson undertook his PhD on the effect of profiles on micro-instabilities with the University of York and in collaboration with CCFE. Following this he held the Culham Fusion Research Fellowship and EUROfusion Researcher Fellowship, during which he developed and exploited high performance simulations to study the behaviour of electromagnetic instabilities and associated turbulence. Since 2016 David has held a lectureship at the University of York, where he continues to work on his main area of research in computational and theoretical plasma physics, with a focus on instabilities and related turbulence in magnetically confined plasmas of particular relevance to fusion energy applications.
