Short Bio
I am Full Professor of Numerical Analysis at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Ferrara, Italy. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Bologna, Italy, and subsequently held visiting professorships at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, the University of Orléans, France, and the University of Toulouse, France. I served as Department Chair from 2009 to 2018. I was awarded as Nelder Fellow at the Imperial College, London, UK, in 2015, and John von Neumann Professor at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 2019. My research interests include multiscale modeling and numerical methods for phenomena described by nonlinear time-dependent partial differential equations, particularly by hyperbolic balance laws and kinetic equations. I am currently member of the editorial board of Multiscale Modeling and Simulation, Communications in Mathematical Sciences, Kinetic and Related Models, SMAI - Journal of Computational Mathematics, Entropy and have previously been member of the editorial board of SIAM Journal of Scientific Computing, and Journal of Hyperbolic Differential Equations. The results of my research activity are reported in about 160 scientific publications and 5 books.
