Peter Norgaard


Peter Norgaard studied Mechanical & Aerospace engineering at the University of Washington and then Princeton University. His undergraduate and graduate research focused on experimental and computational plasma physics, particularly applications to magnetic confinement nuclear fusion. He also studied and worked in the field of numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations. At Google, Peter works on the inverse problem of plasma state reconstruction from sparse measurements using Bayesian inference.
