Short bio and research interests
Dr. Juan Ruiz Ruiz is a postdoctoral research assistant in the Oxford Plasma Theory group at Oxford University. He completed undergraduate and Masters studies at Ecole Polytechnique (Paris, 2013), and received a Masters in Aeronautics & Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, 2015). He completed a PhD in Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT in 2019, where he started to work on turbulence and transport in the spherical tokamak NSTX. Dr. Ruiz Ruiz is interested in the confinement of hot, strongly magnetized plasmas for fusion energy applications. His expertise is on the interpretation of turbulence fluctuation measurements in tokamaks (high-k scattering, Doppler backscattering) using reduced scattering models and nonlinear gyrokinetic turbulence simulation.
