Brief Vitae

Trevor is from Johannesburg, South Africa, where he completed degrees in both aeronautical engineering and theoretical physics at the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) in 2006-2007. He then moved to Canberra, Australia where he finished his PhD at the Australian National University (ANU) in 2011. Trevor is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Ecole Polytechnique in France.

Research interests

Plasma/electric propulsion, space propulsion, electromagnetic wave propagation in plasmas, fundamental plasma physics, particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations.
