I am a second year PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dwight Barkley and Dr. Ed Brambley.
My research focuses on applied mathematics problems arising in Fluid Dynamics. In particular, I am mainly interested in:
- Linear and nonlinear stability theory.
- Wave propagation problems.
- Perturbation Methods.
I am also interested in numerical methods for Partial Differential Equations. At present, I am working on the linear stability and wave dynamics of free surface swirling flows.
Previously, I was a student at Politecnico di Milano (Italy), where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Aerospace Engineering and my Master's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering. In my master's thesis I studied the Ginzburg-Landau equation in the context of the nonlinear hydrodynamics stability and its application to the Taylor-Couette flow.
