Large-scale kinetic simulations of fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas. For example, turbulent transport phenomena in helical fusion devices and collision-less magnetic reconnection in Earth’s magnetosphere. Development of numerical schemes to include various atomic processes and complicated structures of device components and equilibrium magnetic fields in the edge region of helical fusion devices.
