Research interests

My main research topic is the Hypocoercivity for Kinetic equations. With Prof. Christian Schmeiser we investigate the laws that rule the convergence to the equilibrium in a variety of kinetic systems. In particular now we are considering a kinetic model with thermalization coupled to a parabolic equation describing the interaction of the gas with its background. The temperature of the backgorund influences locally the thermalization. Thermal and knetic energy are exchanged.

I also worked with Prof. Giulio Schimperna on existence and regularities results for coupled Navier-Stokes and Allen-Cahn systems.

Short CV

Graduated in Theoretical Physics at the University of Pavia.
Six months Erasmus in Coimbra (Portugal).
Two months Erasmus in Poitiers (France)

From the 1st October 2017 I am a PhD student in Math at the University of Vienna under the supervision of Prof. Christian Schmeiser.
Four months visiting at LJLL, Sorbonne Université (Pierre et Marie Curie).

From 18th October 2019 to the end of the year I will be at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech-Pasadena) hosted by Franca Hoffmann. With Franca we are using the hypocoercivity theory for a chemotaxis model.

From the 9th of March to the 12 of April (2020) I will be at the University of Kyoto. There I will collaborate with Prof. Karel Svadlenka and Paul Stocker on cells aggregation problems.
