Between 2009-2012 I was part of the
the EPSRC project "Multilevel Preconditioners based on Composite Finite Element Methods
for Fluid Flow Problems" (grant EP/H005498). In the context of this project I developed adaptive higher-order methods and preconditioners for fluid flow problems on domains with complicated geometrical features and microstrucutres.
2009 I worked on high and mid frequency acoustic problems in the European
project MIDEA. In the context of this project I developed
adaptive higher-order methods for acoustic problems.
I also collaborate
with the software company inuTech in order to implement my methods
in the numerical package Diffpack.
In 2009 I won the 14th Leslie Fox Prize, an international prize for younger researcher in numerical analysis.
Between 2008-2009 I was part of the
project (a european
project on the development of adaptive higher order variational methods
for aerospace applications). The goal of ADIGMA is the development and
utilization of innovative adaptive higher-order methods for the
compressible flow equations enabling reliable, mesh independent
numerical solutions for large-scale aerodynamic applications in
got my Ph.D. in 2008
University of Bath under the
supervision of Prof.
Ivan G. Graham. Meanwhile I
was a memebr of the
Bath Institute for Complex Systems (BICS).
title of my final dissertation is "Convergence
Finite Element Methods for Elliptic Eigenvalue Problems with
Applications to Photonic Crystals".
2003-2004 I have attendend a M.Sc. In Applied and Computational
Mathematics at the University
of Oxford under the supervision
The title of my final dissertation is "Magnus
Series Methods for
2003 I graduated in Mathematics at the University
of Pavia, in Italy. The title of
my thesis was "Calcolo degli
della Cavitá Risonante".
My supervisor at that time was Prof.
As a student, I
was affiliated with the Borromeo's University College, an institution of
excellent which is comparable to The Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna of Pisa.
