Biography Matteo has been appointed as Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Nottingham in October 2017. His research sits at the interface between numerical mathematics, physical modelling and computational engineering.
He previously held a Zeeman Lectureship at the Warwick Mathematics Institute (2015-2017) and postdoctoral research positions (2012-2015) across the globe: at Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) of the University of Texas at Austin, in the Uncertainty Quantification centre (SRI-UQ) of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and in the Groundwater Engineering group at Politecnico di Torino.
He graduated in Engineering Mathematics (BSc and MSc) at Politecnico di Torino where he also got his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2012 with a thesis titled “Computational models for the simulation of turbulent poly-dispersed flows: Large Eddy Simulation and Quadrature-Based Moment Method”.
Research Interests Being trained as a Mathematical Engineer, and with a PhD on computational methods for multiphase fluid dynamics in Chemical Engineering, I now consider myself part of a new generation of applied mathematicians, trying to overcome the traditional distinction between Numerical Analysis, Applied Analysis, Scientific Computing, and Computational/Mathematical Physics.

My engineering background motivates me towards pragmatic solutions for real-world engineering problems, but with an attention to mathematical structures and a rigorous first-principles approaches. I believe, in fact, that only a genuine inter- and intra-disciplinary approach can truly address and understand the complex interplays of physics, modelling and numerics in fields such as multiscale and multiphase fluid dynamics.
