I’m an astrophysicist who uses theory and computational simulations to study space and astrophysical plasmas. Currently, I work as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department at the University of Chicago studying collisionless plasma shocks, cosmic ray streaming instabilities and relativistic asymmetric magnetic reconnection.
I received my PhD in Plasma Physics from the University of Delaware in December 2016. My graduate work focused on studying heating in heliospheric magnetic reconnection and kinetic plasma turbulence.
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...
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...
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...
