Genia Vogman is a computational scientist at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Her research is focused on development and application of continuum kinetic simulations for plasma physics. Her work leverages high-order numerical methods and high performance computing to solve the partial differential equations of plasma kinetic theory. These high-fidelity simulations shed light on the microphysics of particle-particle and particle-wave interactions so as to better predict experimental observations. The simulations allow us to investigate the properties of low-density plasmas in magnetized environments relevant to pulsed power inertial confinement fusion.
Genia holds a B.S. in aerospace engineering and a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Washington. She earned her Ph.D. at UC Berkeley. She was a recipient of the Berkeley Chancellor Fellowship, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Fellowship, and the Lawrence Postdoctoral Fellowship.
