Francesca Poli’s expertise is in simulating the evolution of tokamak plasma discharges. She uses waves and neutral beams to modify the plasma current profile and to optimize the plasma performance. She applies her expertise to interpret existing experiments, to predict and design new experiments, and to predict plasma performance in ITER, the international demonstration fusion reactor being built in the south of France.
