Livia Casali

Assistant Professor of Nuclear Engineering, Zinkle Faculty Fellow, University of Tennessee


Dr. Livia Casali is a nuclear and plasma physicist with experience in nuclear fusion research on the DIII-D tokamak in the USA and the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak in Germany. She works both on experiments and computational modeling: she designs, executes, analyzes experiments as well as performing modeling using state of the art simulation tools such as SOLPS-ITER.

She is currently co-leading the Core-Edge Integration Area for the DIII-D tokamak. The breadth of her research includes radiative and detached divertors, divertor optimization, impurity transport and core-edge integration solution to achieve high core performance scenarios with mitigated heat loads which are essential for future reactor operations. Dr. Casali is very passionate about sharing her interest for nuclear fusion and physics with the general public.
