    Personal profile


    I am Associate Professor at GTIIT since August 2022.

    I completed my studies at the Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy) with a Laurea degree (equivalent to BEng plus MEng) and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering, with specialty in nuclear thermal-hydraulics. Successively, I completed (in my free time) a MSc in Mathematics at the University of Pavia (Italy), with specialty in computational fluid dynamics.

    After graduating, I worked as Senior Engineer/Scientist for the nuclear vendor Westinghouse Electric Company in Pittsburgh-PA (USA) on transient/safety analysis of water-cooled nuclear power plants and on design/testing of small-modular water-cooled nuclear reactor systems. I successively moved to the Chalmers University in Gothenburg (Sweden) and then to the EPFL-The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Switzerland), where I worked as Postdoctoral researcher on macro-micro-scale two-phase flow modelling for demanding cooling applications. I joined the University of Manchester (UK) in 2013 as Lecturer in Thermal-Hydraulics, and was successively promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2018 and then to Reader in 2021. During this time, I have been associated with over USD18M research funding, with USD570k as personal credit, and have been PI in two research grants funded by EPSRC-Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (UK).

    I have taught Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, and Numerical Methods in Heat Transfer, and became Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK) in 2018. I supervised 3 Postdocs, 5 PhDs, and over 20 MSc Theses.

    I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (Proc. IMechE), and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Nuclear Engineering.
