Plamen Ivanov BA , MSc (Cantab), DPhil (Oxon)

Physics Tutor

My name is Plamen and I am excited to be your Physics tutor at Oxbridge International Summer School 2017. I am from Bulgaria and I came to the UK to study in Cambridge in 2012. I did a 3-year degree in Maths there, followed by a 1-year master’s degree in Physics. I am now a DPhil (or PhD outside of Oxford) student in the Theoretical Physics sub-department in Oxford. I am working with the Plasma Theory group on understanding the behaviour of plasma inside a tokamak – a type of a nuclear fusion reactor. My day to day work is mostly analytical, i.e. playing with equations on a piece of paper. So in that regard it is not that much different from doing a degree in Maths! I love (nearly) everything about Maths and Physics and will be very happy to share some of this love of mine with you!

Apply now and don’t miss the opportunity to be taught by our brilliant tutors like Plamen.
