Plasma physics at NYU

Hello,

I just got a free application fee waiver from NYU and I was wondering if anyone here knows if they do any plasma physics research there? I might as well apply since its free, but I can't seem to find anywhere on their site someone who does plasma physics. I don't mind what department it's in, but preferably engineering.

One might start with the NYU physics department.

http://physics.as.nyu.edu/page/home
http://physics.as.nyu.edu/object/physics.1214.ug.courses [Broken] - no plasma physics
http://physics.as.nyu.edu/object/physics.1315.grad.courses - seems to lack a devoted plasma physics course

It may be that plasma physics is buried in astrophysics, or it may be a special topic to be arranged with the faculty. I doubt they have an experimental plasma physics facility, but one would have to enquire. Plasma physics studies may be theoretical/computational.

However, http://physics.as.nyu.edu/object/physics.research.astrophysics
The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics is a unique collaboration devoted to integrated study of cosmology, observational astronomy, fundamental and phenomenological particle physics, gravity, plasma physics, high energy astrophysics, black holes and computational physics.

NYU has some plasma physics as part of the Courant Institute, where it is worked on from a more theoretical/computational direction.

If you look in the people category, I believe there are three people doing plasma physics research. Cerfon is the one that comes to mind for me, as I actually met with him and discussed research.

Interesting. I am actually a mathematics major so I probably have a better shot at that program than some of the other physics ones.

Thanks for the updates.
