Matthew Landreman

Landreman, Matt

Associate Research Scientist
3333 A.V. Williams Building

Research Interests: 

Dr. Landreman studies the role of symmetry in magnetically confined plasmas, using both theory and high-performance computing.  Much of his group's work concerns the stellarator, a plasma trap that uses magnetic fields with carefully designed shaping.  The stellarator is a candidate configuration for fusion energy, as well as a general charged particle trap.  Other research interests include plasma turbulence, optimization, and adjoint methods.


Dr. Landreman studied at Swartmore College and Oxford University, and received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011.  He has been a member of IREAP since 2013.
