    Personal Summary

    I am a computational scientist since ten years with high specialization in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and especially in the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). During this period I faced several different problems like multiphase flows (liquid-solid, liquid-gas), chemically reactive flows or turbulence. I have always been a software developer, since my research and professional activity has involved a lot of programming in different languages like FORTRAN, C and especially C++ in order to extend the features of the different CFD codes I worked with, either in their single or multiprocessor implementations. I am therefore used to face new challenges and topics. I have a problem solving and a positive attitude and I am used to work alone or with limited supervision in order to build my own expertise.

    Professional Activity

    Software Developer at FluiDyna GmbH: CFD Methods & Solutions (July 2013 – December 2015). 

    Edisonstraße 3, D-85716 Unterschleißheim, Germany     

    I have been responsible for the development of ultraFluidX (UFX), a GPU-LBM code designed to study car aerodynamics in a fast and accurate way. UFX is a massively multi-threaded OO C++ program based on an Octree data structure. I took over the original code developer and my first task has been performing a massive validation of the existing models. Then I especially worked on the implementation of boundary conditions, collision schemes and porous media modeling, together with code maintenance and debugging.



    ·        Post-Doctorate. “Multiphase flows simulations with the Lattice Boltzmann method”. Clausthal University (June 2008 - June 2013).

    During my staying at Clausthal I supervised 2 master students. I applied the Lattice Boltzmann Method to multiphase and chemically reactive flows. My research on Fischer-Tropsch reaction was part of the DFG-funded project “Verbesserung des diffusiven Stofftransports in hierarchisch aufgebauten Fischer-Tropsch-Katalysatoren” ( together with Professors A. Weber and T. Turek. This project was one of the 16 projects approved in the framework of DFG Schwerpunktprogramme 1570 „Poröse Medien mit definierter Porenstruktur in der Verfahrenstechnik - Modellierung, Anwendungen, Synthese“ (

    I have been the first student at Southampton applying the Lattice Boltzmann Method. I focused on liquid-gas microflows like CO2 flow and droplets dynamics in microchannels.


    ·        B.S. Aerospace Engineering, University of Naples “Federico II”, 2004.

    Most important subjects covered: Aerodynamics, Hypersonic Aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Structural Mechanics, Space Systems, Satellites and Sensors, Control Theory, Artificial Intelligence.
