Laura Mendoza

I was born in Strasbourg, France, but was raised in Guatemala city where I went to a French school. I did my undergraduate degree in the University of Strasbourg, where I obtained a bachelor degree in Mathematics with minor in Computer Science followed by a Master degree in Applied Mathematics specialized in Scientific Computing and Computer Science Security. Then, I obtained my Ph.D. in Numerical Methods in Plasma's Physics at the Technical University of Munich while I was based at the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics. I want back to Strasbourg for a 2-year post-doc. Currently, I am working on the development and optimization of the ToFu library as a Research Engineering at the INRIA institute. This research is being funded by a 3-year Engineering grant of EUROFUSION obtained in June 2018.

ToFu - an open-source python/cython library for synthetic tomography diagnostics on Tokamaks

We present an open-source parallelized and cythonized python library, ToFu, for modeling tomography diagnostics on nuclear fusion reactors. Its functionalities (with realistic examples), its architecture and its design will be shown.
