Antonia Larese is tenure track Assistant Professor (Ricercatore tipo B) at the University of Padova (Italy) since October 2018. She has worked in CIMNE (International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering, Spain) since 2006. She has been working as postdoc and lecturer at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) for ten years.

She is an expert in computational mechanics and fluid-structure interaction problems. She has worked with different numerical approaches, ranging from continuous to particle methods in both Lagrangian and Eulerian frameworks. She has worked on the development and combination of different numerical techniques for the analysis of coupled problems accounting for free surface flows, non-Newtonian materials and fluid-structure interaction. Moreover, she is working on innovative immersed boundary methods (IBM) for fluid-structure interaction
