The main research focus lies on large scale plasma instabilities in magnetically confined fusion devices, which are investigated via non-linear extended MHD simulations to reveal underlying mechanisms and develop control schemes. Related to the research center, in particular an extension of the JOREK code to stellarator geometries is on the way, and a series of benchmarks between JOREK and American MHD codes is conducted.
