James (Jimmy) Juno received his B. Sc. in computational physics from Rice University in 2014. He is currently a Ph. D. candidate at the University of Maryland, College Park, working under the supervision of Professor Bill Dorland.
Throughout his PhD, he has been co-supervised by Dr. Jason TenBarge and Dr. Ammar Hakim at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab. With them, he works in the Gkeyll project, developing the continuum Vlasov-Maxwell solver within the Gkeyll code for the simulation of instabilities and turbulence in space and astrophysical plasmas. His thesis work involves the study of dissipation mechanisms and entropy production, with the goal of understanding irreversible heating, in a variety of plasma systems such as the solar corona.
