Perez, Jean Carlos

Associate Professor, Aerospace, Physics and Space Sciences

Personal Overview

My primary research interests are in the area of nonlinear dynamics and turbulence in plasma flows with applications to laboratory, space and astrophysical plasmas, placing strong emphasis in fundamental processes that are common to these plasmas. I have worked in analytical and numerical modeling of complex plasma systems using fluid closures such as magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and multi-fluid models.
