Sharad K. Yadav

Post-doctoral researcher


Ph.D., Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), Gandhinagar, India ( 2011)

M.S., Allahabad University, Allahabad, India (2004)

Dr. Yadav started working in this group in August, 2017 as a postdoctoral research associate. Currently, he is working on the computational modeling of non-conventional ion sources (toroidal Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources (ECRIS)) to understand the ion extraction mechanism. Simultaneously, he is also working on the modeling of low-aspect-ratio CNT stellarator to analyze/understand the ECRH/e-beam synergy effect, recently observed in this machine. In past, he has worked on computational plasma physics for the study of the fast time scale phenomena occurring at electron time scale using the electron magnetohydrodynamics (EMHD) description of plasma. He is experienced doing the hydrodynamic simulation. In future, he would be interested working on MHD too, for the study of the nonlinear features of plasma (of both types, lab as well as space) observed at MHD time scale.
