Jane Pratt's research centers on astrophysical hydrodynamics and MHD simulation to address problems of stellar structure, stellar dynamics, and the dynamo. She also works on stability of fusion plasmas, and develops and uses massively parallel applications to study MHD turbulence, MHD instabilities, and (turbulent) convection.
