Zoran Mikić

Dr. Mikić is a computational plasma physicist specializing in magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation of solar and fusion plasmas. His research interests in solar physics include large-scale MHD modeling of the solar corona, the eruption of coronal magnetic field arcades, coronal mass ejections, the three-dimensional structure of the solar corona, modeling of active-region coronal magnetic fields, coronal heating, and solar flares. He is also interested in the implementation and development of implicit algorithms, and in the inversion of sparse matrices.
