A passionate scientist working in the field of multiphysics modelling by lattice Boltzmann method. Enthusiastic author of more than 30 papers in scientific international peer-reviewed journals. Charmed by challenging physics problems.


I work as a Lecturer in Virtual Engineering at the University of Manchester. After having received the Master Degree in Civil Engineering at University of Calabria (2009), I moved to the University of Bologna where I completed the PhD in Structural and Hydraulic Engineering (2013). In 2015, I have been awarded the PRESTIGE postdoctoral mobility grant (Marie Curie Actions) that allowed me to spend 18 months at the Laboratoire de Mecanique des Fluides et Acoustique where I developed lattice Boltzmann algorithms to simulate high-Reynolds magnetohydrodynamic flows. I also spend a period at the Biofluids Laboratory of the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology aiming at simulating biological flows.
