Research Experience

  • Post-doctoral Research Scientist, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, 2008-Present
  • Post-doctoral Research Scientist, UC San Diego, 2005-2008

Ilon Joseph is a theoretical and computational plasma physicist with general interests in plasma physics, magnetic fusion, dynamical systems and control theory. Specific plasma physics experience: edge plasma physics, reconnection, transport due to 3D magnetic perturbations, control of 3D magnetohydrodynamic equilibria, and symplectic computational methods.
