After graduating in Aerospace Engineering at the Federico II University of Naples, I joined the Impact Engineering team at University of Oxford as a DPhil student.

My research involved the creation of an adaptive multi-domain finite elements framework for the simulation of dynamic events (e.g. explosions). In particular, depending on the location and entity of the external excitation the initial coarse model will be automatically subsequently refined, in time and space, without generating instabilities between differently discretised models.

In 2018 I joined the Mathworks where I have been contributing at the development of Simulink Projects: a tool for the analysis and visualisation of dependencies between Matlab scripts and Simulink models.

I joined the EPCC as Applications Consultant in 2019, working at the Advanced Simulation and Modelling of Virtual Systems (ASiMoV) project whose aim is to simulate an entire aircraft jet engine in operation at very high fidelity. Inside this project I am currently developing techniques for the verification of parallel frameworks and the generation of optimised computing workflows  for multi-scale and multi-physics simulations.
