Personal Description:

I am a Research Associate at Imperial College London.

I am working on a collaboration with London Underground and other construction engineering companies to provide a better understanding of post-crack behaviour of sprayed concrete lined tunnels. My research will help engineers design future expansions of the underground railway system in the UK.

I am also working on the numerical simulation of particle stress and fracture for catalyst support optimisation. This research is the result of a collaboration between Imperial and Johnson Matthey, an FTSE 100 listed company (Johnson Matthey fits with its catalysts around one third of all cars worldwide).

I have been presenting my research at conferences in the UK, Europe and Asia. I have also been invited to deliver talks at the 7th International Conference on Coupled Problems (Greece) and at the 5th International Conference on Particle-Based Methods (Germany). In the 7th International Conference on Discrete Element Methods (China), my paper 'Simulation and characterisation of packed columns for cylindrical catalyst supports and other complex-shaped bodies' has been awarded Best Student Paper.

Alongside my academic research, I am also teaching, both as a teaching assistant at Imperial and as a private tutor. I have also been one of the organisers of the Hermes 2016, an international summer school on material science and science communication.

I was born in Monza, near Milan (Italy), and before moving to the UK I have studied at the Polytechnic University of Milan, where I have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Building Engineering and a Master’s degree in Structural Engineering.

When I am not busy running computer simulations or making experiments with high-velocity impact testing machines, I also sing (mostly jazz and rock) and play guitar.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been working as a teaching assistant in the following courses of the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London: Maths Methods 3 (Vector Calculus and Fourier Analysis) - Physics for Geoscientists (Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism) - Numerical Methods 1 (Numerical methods in Python) - Coastal Engineering (Coastal Structures, design and case histories, and Slope Stability) - Environmental and Engineering Geology (Excavation, Blasting, Geomaterials, properties testing and uses, and Construction Case Histories)

I have been giving private lessons to A Level, undergraduate and Master's students. Over the last few years I have also been working with major London-based tutoring agencies, often working with students from Russell Group universities. I teach different scientific topics, such as mathematics (mainly calculus, linear algebra and numerical methods), computer science, physics, and engineering (mainly structural analysis, hydraulics and soil mechanics).

Tutoring Approach:

I like to explain abstract physical and mathematical concepts by giving concrete examples. In my lessons I try to relate directly to the students' needs by actively discussing the topics with them to check for gaps and misunderstandings. I encourage my students to go beyond the simple repetition of formulas and definitions to achieve a deeper understanding of how these are connected and their applications to real-life phenomena.
