Jason Parisi

I am a theoretical physics PhD student at the University of Oxford. My PhD work focuses on understanding turbulence in nuclear fusion reactors. Specifically, I focus on understanding microinstability in a steep gradient region at the edge of fusion plasmas called the pedestal. My tools are pen and paper, and code. I also collaborate with physicists at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) and the Joint European Torus (JET) tokamak facility. I also have interests in relativity and very early universe cosmology. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Yale University.
