I hold a master degree in nuclear engineering and a PhD in mechanics in materials both from the University of Bologna. I am presently assistant professor of mathematical physics at the Department of Mathematics & CIRAM of the University of Bologna, as well as external scientific member at BCAM.

The main research fileds I am currently involved in are: Non-linear wave propagation and hyperbolic systems; Extended thermodynamics of polyatomic gases; Numerical modelling of wildland fire.

During my frequent visits at BCAM I carry out with the BCAM member Gianni Pagnini the research project "Combustion-Wave Interactions via Extended Thermodynamics" cofunded by Bizkaia Xede and European Commission (COFUND programme, 2014/2016).
