Mechanical Engineering & the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME), Stanford University.
I am an Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) here at Stanford. I am Italian (from Sorrento, in south of Italy) and moved to Stanford in 1998. My research is in computer simulations of fluid dynamic problems with applications to energy generation, propulsion, aerodynamics. I am interested in uncertainy analysis and computational mathematics. I teach classes in fluid dynamics, numerical methods, linear algebra, uncertainty analysis... I direct the Exascale Computing Engineering Center, the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (with Margot Gerritsen), the Thermal Fluid Science Affiliates Program and the Uncertainty Quantification Laboratory I am an associate editor of the Journal of Computational Physics, the Applied Mechanics Review and Flow, Turbulence and Combustion.
