Ruben Juanes unravels the mysteries of underground flows

Written by:

Ruben JuanesProfessor Ruben Juanes, the ARCO Associate Professor of Energy Studies in CEE, studies the flow of underground fluids, especially combinations of fluids like oil, water and natural gas through porous rock. After starting out with mathematical simulations of these multiphase flows, his work now also incorporates laboratory experiments replicating the complex dynamics of such flows. A feature story on MIT News describes Juanes’ work and the motivation behind his research. Read the story on MIT News.
