Cristina Rea: Taming fusion with machine learning

PSFC Postdoc Cristina Rea is developing a database to centralize information about disruptions in C-Mod, DIII-D and other tokamaks around the world. Through machine learning techniques to model and predict the progress of distruptions Rea hopes to find ways to mitigate the problem.

3 questions: Robert Granetz on fusion research

In a recent talk at the MIT Energy Initiative, PSFC Research Scientist Robert Granetz discussed how using machine learning to develop a real-time warning system for impending disruptions in fusion reactors is bringing us one step closer to creating a stable, net-energy-producing fusion device.
