Albert Mollén

Gästforskare at Department of Physics, Subatomic and Plasma Physics

Albert Mollén is a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology since 2010, working in the electromagnetic field theory research group. He is active in theoretical fusion plasma physics. His research interests include collisional and turbulent particle transport in both axisymmetric and 3D magnetic configurations, and the analysis of microinstabilities. Furthermore he has a special focus on how to avoid impurity accumulation in fusion devices.
