- Mathematical modeling and simulation of the coupling
between hemodynamics and metabolism
- Optimal control and identification for systems
governed by partial differential equations
- Boundary element and finite element method for the numerical
approximation of solutions of differential problems
- Interaction between 1D and 3D problems.
In the picture on the left: streamlines
of velocity for flow in a 3D porous medium (the cylinder) with a 1D branching
fracture (streamlines originate around this fracture). Typically, the flow in the
1D fracture is fast, while flow in the porous matrix is slow. This framework may be used
to study blood perfusion in tissues with complex vascular networks.
What and When
I was born in Milan (Italy) on December 23rd, 1978.
After the high school (scientific degree at Liceo "A. Volta"), I studied at
Technical University of Milan, "Politecnico di Milano",
where I graduated in April 2003 as an electronic engineer,
(in the mathematical and physical orientation) with a thesis on an optimal shape control problem
for radiatiative heat transfer, under the supervision of prof. Fausto Saleri and dr. Antonella
Abbà, MOX, department of Mathematics.
I began my Ph.D. thesis in the group of prof. Alfio Quarteroni in November
2003, studying shape sensitivity problems dealing with heat transfer and mass flows.
In April 2004 I started working on the mathematical modeling of the coupling
between cardiovascular system and metabolism, especially under effort conditions.
The goal of this research is to extend standard hemodynamical models
in order to account for the feedback of tissues and autonomous system; this may be of
interest for instance in sport medicine or in the analysis of certain diseases.
My research is founded by the SRE program
(Sport and Rehabilitation Engineering) at EPFL.
