Magnetohydrodynamics Turbulence Turbulence Modeling Nuclear Fusion

About

David Sondak received his PhD and M.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Applied Mathematics in August 2013 and May 2011, respectively. Both degrees were awarded by Rensseraler Polytechnic Institute. He received hi B.S degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University in May of 2008. David is currently a Van Vleck visiting Assistant Professor and postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. David's doctoral research focused on developing subgrid scale models for magnetohydrodynamic turbulence. His current research relates to atmospheric turbulence and buoyancy-driven instabilities. He maintains an active interest in plasma physics, computational plasma physics, and related applications such as nuclear fusion and geodynamo modeling.
