Course Instructor
      Dr. Chan Joshi is currently a Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at University of California Los Angeles and the Director of the Fast Track to Success and Honors Program. He is also the Director of the Neptune Facility for Advanced Accelerator Research at UCLA.

His research is in the fields of plasma physics, lasers and electromagnetics. In particular Professor Joshi has interests in the areas of laser fusion, laser acceleration of particles, nonlinear optics of plasmas, high-power lasers and particle beams, and basic plasma phenomena. Prof. Joshi has made many fundamental contributions to our understanding of extremely nonlinear optical effects in plasmas. Most notable are his first experimental demonstrations in plasmas of four-wave mixing, stimulated Raman forward instability, stimulated Compton scattering, resonant self-focusing, quasi-resonant modes, frequency up shifting by ionization fronts and nonlinear coupling between electron-plasma waves. His research group is best known for work in the field of ultra-high gradient acceleration of charged particles using space charge density waves in plasmas using a laser or a particle beam pulse. Such wakes are being considered as accelerating structures for next generation of particle colliders and compact light sources to make these critical instruments of scientific discovery compact and affordable. Work started by Professor Joshi in the 1980s at UCLA has now spread worldwide.
