Assistant Professor & Warden (Men’s Hostel)


Education : Ph.D. (Universitat Bayreuth)

Dr.Shiva Kumar Malapaka worked for his Ph.D at the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching, München and got his degree from University of Bayreuth, Bayreuth, Germany, in 2009. His thesis is on ' Simulations of Three Dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence', where in he studied a property known as 'inverse cascade of magnetic helicity'. His Postdoctoral experience includes work at University of Colorado, Boulder, USA, UPMC, Paris, France, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, TIFR-TCIS, Hyderabad, India and University of Rome 'Tor Vergata', Rome, Italy. His research interests are principally three dimensional simulations of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic turbulence, simulations of magnetic confinement of Plasma (ITER) and n-body simulations for planetary formation. These research areas fall into an area called Computational Physics and cover problems in the areas of fundamental physics, astrophysics and mechanical engineering
