Dr. Onnie Luk is a post doctoral researcher in the Numerical Methods for Plasma Physics Division at Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik. Her research focuses on component-based multiscale fusion modeling in tokamaks, particularly in developing time bridging methods to connect turbulence and transport models and implementing validation, verification, and uncertainty quantification techniques. She previously participated in the ComPat project, and currently is a part of the VECMA project – both of which are funded by the European Union’s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme. Before she joined IPP, she conducted her doctoral degree research on the role of convective cells in nonlinear interaction of kinetic Alfvén waves at the University of California, Irvine.
