Biography

Matteo was appointed an Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Nottingham in October 2017. His research sits at the interface between numerics, mathematical modelling and engineering. He previously held a Zeeman Lectureship at the Warwick Mathematics Institute (2015-2017) and postdoctoral research positions (2012-2015) at the 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 obtained 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".

Expertise Summary

  • Modelling and simulation of complex multiphase flows
  • Multiscale and model reduction methods
  • Flow and Transport Theory in Porous Media
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics

Teaching Summary

I enjoy teaching applied and computational mathematics, particularly related to fluid dynamics and differential equations.

In 2020-2021 I will be teaching the Spring part of Applied Mathematics, while in the past I have taught differential equations to Mathematics and Engineering students.

Research Summary

My research focuses on multiscale simulation, uncertainty quantification and model reduction with applications in a wide range of areas including environmental fluid dynamics, rechargeable batteries,… read more
