Joseph Parker is a computational scientist based in the Theoretical and Computational Physics Group at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
His main research interests are in plasma physics:
- Nonlinear behaviour in kinetic plasmas
- Spectral methods for velocity space
- Efficient simulation of plasmas on HPC systems
Joseph is the CoSeC project manager for HEC/CCP-Plasma. He is a senior developer for BOUT++ code, and for its STORM physics module. He is also a developer for the code GS2.
