Stellarators are non-axisymmetric magnetic field configurations for confinement of fusion plasmas. In contrast to the more popular axisymmetric tokamak geometries, stellarators rely on symmetry breaking to confine particles. We are pleased to be part of the the Simons Collaboration on Hidden Symmetries and Fusion Energy, a team dedicated to advancing the mathematical and computational state of the art in stellarator design and producing a modern stellarator optimization code that can exploit the full power of petascale and exascale computers. With expertise spanning optimization theory, plasma physics, dynamical systems, and PDE analysis, our collaboration model is based on shared postdocs – if this sounds like it might be exciting to you, we are looking!
