Senior Research Scientist
Dr. Stanislav Boldyrev is a theorist working in the fields of plasma physics, space physics, and astrophysics. His interests include magnetic plasma turbulence at large and small scales and its role in the solar wind and the interstellar medium, turbulent dynamo action and its role in generation of magnetic fields in astrophysical systems (galaxies, accretion flows, etc.), the properties of compressible turbulence and its role in star-forming interstellar molecular clouds. Dr. Boldyrev received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1999, and then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Santa Barbara (now Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics) and as a research associate at the University of Chicago. He is currently a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
