Rachel Bielajew is a PhD student in the Nuclear Science and Engineering Department studying magnetic confinement fusion in the Plasma Science and Fusion Center. Her research focuses on measuring turbulence in the edge of plasmas across different types of confinement regimes at the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak in Germany. She works with the Correlation Cyclotron Emission Diagnostic, which measures turbulent electron temperature fluctuations. She is excited about the prospect of fusion as a carbon free energy source. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 2014. Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering with a minor in physics. Peace Corps; Chisenga, Chitipa, Malawi; 2015-2017.
