Most of my research is on developing fusion energy into a future energy source. I work with measurements of energetic particles in fusion plasmas and am particularly interested in measuring the 2D velocity distribution of the energetic particles either by tomography or by so-called weight functions that quantify the velocity-space sensitivity of the measurements. The measurements are made by fast-ion D-alpha spectroscopy, collective Thomson scattering, neutron emission spectrometry, gamma-ray spectroscopy, neutral particle analyzers, fast-ion loss detectors, ion cycliotron emission spectroscopy and proton spectroscopy. I am working on many tokamaks and stellarators around the world: ITER, JET, ASDEX Upgrade, Wendelstein 7-X, TCV, MAST Upgrade, DIII-D, EAST, and LHD. I enjoy teaching BSc-, MSc- and PhD-level courses and teach at the moment 10400 Plasma Physics, 10036 Electromagnetism for Physicists and 10420 Physics of Sports.
