Undergraduate

Rui Diaz-Pacheco is a fourth year student at the college at Columbia majoring in physics. From Cd. Juarez, in Mexico, he now lives in Texas and he is pursuing a career in scientific research of energy production. He joined the CNT group in 2015 and has worked in upgrading the safety of the Faraday cage. More recently he assisted with the microwave heating and profile measurements of the CNT plasma, and performed fast camera measurements of the CNT plasma and of a liquid metal flow. He is currently assembling an improved liquid metal experiment and collaborating on the electrical insulation and epoxying of the CIRCUS coils.
