Biography

Juan is interested in the fluid dynamics and physics of fluid flows that affect the oceans and climate. To this end, he is investigating the energetics and dynamics of convection processes and of the overturning circulation in the oceans. He uses a combination of theory, model development, and analysis of data from idealized and realistic model simulations and from observations.
