I received my PhD in Plasma Physics from the University of Delaware in 2017 which focused on heliospheric magnetic reconnection and kinetic plasma turbulence. I worked as a postdoc in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago until 2021 studying collisionless plasma shocks.

- Collisionless Plasma Shocks and Diffusive Shock Acceleration
- Magnetic Reconnection in Heliospheric and Astrophysical Systems
- Kinetic and MHD Plasma Turbulence
Kinetic Simulations of Cosmic-Ray-Modified Shocks II: Particle Spectra (2020)
D. Caprioli, C. C. Haggerty & P. Blasi Abstract: Diffusive shock acceleration is a prominent mechanism for producing energetic particles in space and in astrophysical systems. Such energetic particles have long been predicted to affect the hydrodynamic structure...
Kinetic Simulations of Cosmic-Ray-Modified Shocks I: Hydrodynamics (2020)
C. C. Haggerty and D. Caprioli Abstract: Collisionless plasma shocks are efficient sources of non-thermal particle acceleration in space and astrophysical systems. We use hybrid (kinetic ions – fluid electrons) simulations to examine the nonlinear feedback of the...
dHybridR: a Hybrid–Particle-in-Cell Code Including Relativistic Ion Dynamics (2019)
C. C. Haggerty and D. Caprioli Abstract: We present the first plasma simulations obtained with the code dHybridR, a hybrid particle-in-cell code with fluid electrons and kinetic relativistic ions. dHybridR is perfectly suited for all the astrophysical and...
