Assistant Professor (RTD B) in Hydraulic and Maritime Constructions and Hydrology at the University of Padova (Italy) since October 2018 (Rita Levi Montalcini professorship). I have been working in CIMNE (International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering, Spain) since 2006 and as postdoc and lecturer at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) for ten years.
I work in computational mechanics with special focus on geomechanics and coupled problems. I have worked with different numerical approaches, from finite elements, to continuum-based particle methods, in both Lagrangian and Eulerian frameworks. I have 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, I am working on innovative immersed boundary methods (IBM) for fluid-structure interaction.
