Research Activity 

Research activity focuses on mesoscale modeling of fluids, and it is framed in an multidisciplinary context involving fluid mechanics, statistical mechanics, applied mathematics, high-performance-computing and material science. In particular fluctuating hydrodynamics theory and phase field models. Such multiscale models allow to cope with a wide spectrum of physical phenomena, such as: phase transition in fluids, cellular membrane mechanics, freezing and crystallization dynamics.
