Fatima Ebrahimi


Theory and computational extended magnetohydrodynamics, Plasma physics

Fatima Ebrahimi is a Research Physicist at the PPPL Theory Department and an Affiliated Research Scholar at the Department of Astrophysical Sciences, Princeton University. She has many years of experience in theoretical and global computational extended magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) with wide applications to laboratory fusion and astrophysical plasmas. Her main research interests are MHD stability in fusion plasmas, momentum transport, dynamos, and magnetic reconnection in laboratory fusion and astrophysical plasmas. She has written many papers over a wide range of topics and peer-reviewed journals. She is an elected executive committee member of the APS Topical Group in Plasma Astrophysics (GPAP), 2018-2021, and program committee member for U.S. Magnetic Fusion Research (MFR) Strategic Directions, 2017-2018.
