Harry Mynick is a Principal Research Physicist (emeritus) in the PPPL Theory Department. He has been a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 1996. His principal areas of expertise are in plasma transport, particularly in 3-dimensional toroidal systems, energetic particle dynamics, and canonical mechanics, and has been a pioneer in the development of neoclassically-optimized[1,2] and, more recently, of turbulence-optimized[3,4] stellarator configurations. He will be contributing to the Simons collaboration principally in the areas of transport and optimization.
