Vyacheslav "Slava" Lukin

My primary scientific interests lie in understanding the physics of magnetized plasmas, the mathematical properties of the equations used to describe the behavior of such plasmas, and ever evolving ways to accurately and efficiently model the complex dynamics of magnetized plasmas in astrophysical and laboratory environments.  I have been the lead developer and curator of the open-source HiFi multi-fluid modeling framework since its inception. 

Present Employment: Program Director, Division of Physics, National Science Foundation

With the 2024 total solar eclipse right around the corner, here is also my small contribution to the hype around the "Great American Eclipse" of 2017: https://www.space.com/37835-plasma-is-crown-of-solar-eclipse.html,

and a follow-on BBC Mundo story on the 2019 solar eclipse in the southern hemisphere:
