P.O. Box 5800, MS 1321
I have an LTE position in the Optimization and Uncertainty Quantification department (Org. 1441) at Sandia National Laboratories. My research is mainly focused on the solution of nonlocal problems; I am currently working on the coupling of classical models (partial differential equations) and nonlocal models, used to model, e.g., materials whose dynamics depends on the micro-structure. I am also investigating mesh repairing techniques associated with transport problems modeled by partial differential equations. Finally, I'm working on the acceleration of Stochastic Collocation Methods in uncertainty quantification.
My scientific interests are Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Optimal Control and Uncertainty Quantification.
I earned Bachelor and Master degree in Mathematical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Quarteroni. I obtained my PhD degree in Applied Mathematics at the Emory University, GA, under the supervision of Prof. Veneziani; my work was focused on Computational Fluid Dynamics for cardiovascular problems. Prior to joining Sandia I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Florida State University in the group of Prof. Gunzburger.
I also served as a course instructor at the Emory University and I worked as an intern at the Business Analysis and Mathematical Sciences department, IBM, NY.
