  • epp team alumnus Paulo A awarded Honourable Mention of Abreu Prize

    The Abreu Faro Prize is awarded to the best PhD thesis in the two preceding years in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Informatics, Mathematics and Physics (and Physics Engineering). The prize is sponsored by Anacom. In 2017, a honourable mention of the the Abreu Faro Prize was awarded to Paulo Alves, epp team alumnus, now at SLAC/Stanford University. Paulo Alves presented a short video testimony and the certificate of the award was received by epp team PhD student Fabio C (in the picture, with the President of IST).

  • epp team at 1st JPP Frontiers in Plasma Physics conference

    Thomas G, Marija V, and Luis OS attended the 1st Journal of Plasma Physics Frontiers in Plasma Physics conference in Spinetto, from May 23 to May 26 and had the opportunity to interact with epp team alumni (Frederico Fiuza also in the picture), friends, and colleagues. The conference (by invitation only) adressed pair plasmas and plasma physics in extreme (astro)physical environments, 3D magnetic cages (stellarators), and magnetokinetic self-organisation and was attended by some of the leaders in the field. Thomas G delivered two talks.
