Research Activities

I started my academic career with a bachelor and master degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Pavia, where it quickly became clear that what really drew my attention were the computational aspects of the engineering problems I was studying.

A fortunate encounter with prof. Daniele Boffi, who would later become my PhD advisor, convinced me to focus on computational mathematics: I defended my master thesis under the supervision of prof. Giuseppe Savarè, and I applied for a PhD scholarship in “Mathematics and Scientific Computing” ( At the time, I was the only person without a purely mathematical background among my fellow PhD colleagues.

I started cultivating a strong interest for fluid-structure interaction problems and advanced computational techniques.

In the following pages, you'll find (an incomplete) list of the arguments I've been working on during my academic career.
