Ruben Juanes: Exploring subsurface energy, from academics to industry
Part of the Institute since 2006, CEE Professor Ruben Juanes knew he wanted a future in the sciences since he was in middle school. Now, the majority of his research is dedicated to flows related to energy and the environment – particularly the simultaneous flow of multiple fluids through porous media. “MIT is a very stimulating place,” Juanes said, in a profile by the MIT Energy Initiative. “What really makes MIT special are the students.” To him, there’s nothing as fulfilling—from an academic perspective—as seeing students evolve and mature and become the world experts in their field. “That process, I must tell you, is magical.” For the article, please see here.
