From April to July of 2023, I did an internship project at KTH in Stockholm, Sweden. The objective was to evaluate the accuracy of the reduced two-temperature model for hot tail runaway electron generation. This involved utilizing the DREAM code to simulate numerous plasma disruptions while varying scanning parameters and comparing the outcomes with a more complete (superthermal) model. During my project I did some literature research into runaway electrons and the working behind the Disruption runaway electron analysis model (DREAM). After this I set up a simulation workflow in python, with which later many different simulations were ran to compare both models.

During my time in Stockholm my supervisor Mathias Hoppe provided me very good guidance and was always available for questions and discussions. He also made sure my stay in Stockholm started of well. Meetings within the plasma theory group were very useful and I learned a lot of things outside of my project too.

During weekends and in my free time, I had the opportunity to explore and enjoy the beauty of Stockholm and Sweden. I met many new friends at the KTH outdoor club and did a lot of camping and climbing. It was a very good experience and I am very glad to be able to do this thanks to the FuseNet grant.
