Research Interests

Dr. Mestas-Nuñez is interested in understanding processes involved in air-sea-land-ice interactions in the Earth's climate system. He works with remotely sensed observations, in situ measurements, and output from climate reanalysis models. He is particularly interested in application of modern observational technologies such as autonomous ocean buoyancy-glider observations, new Earth-observing satellite missions, and applications of data science to the geosciences.

He has served a 3-year tour as a rotating Program Director in the Physical Oceanography Program of the National Science Foundation.
