The research topic is the system design of a fusion reactor. Fusion reactors consist of multiple equipment and systems such as the core plasma, superconducting magnets, blanket system, divertor system, fueling system, and so on. To design a fusion reactor, not only the performance of each element but also consistency between them need to be assured. The detailed research topics are related to design optimization, e.g., design window analysis using a systems code, operation scenario analysis and 3D components design.
