My name is Juan Ruiz and next year I would like to become the Sports Chair of Spain@MIT. After several years of experience at Spain@MIT, and following Spain@MIT’s long tradition of success in the Intramural League at MIT, I would like to help the association and its members practice sport at MIT, as well as be a common meeting point to foster connections and friendships, especially to newcomers.
I am currently a sixth year PhD candidate in the department of Nuclear Science and Engineering. I carry out my research in the Plasma Science and Fusion Center at MIT, working in thermonuclear fusion energy. My research interests are in the topic of turbulence of magnetically confined plasmas for energy applications.
