About me:

I have been a PhD student in the Applied Mathematics track at NJIT since the fall of 2012. I first came to NJIT as an exchange student during the academic year 2011-2012 thanks to a fellowship provided by my former university, Università degli Studi di Siena, in partnership with NJIT. My background is in Mathematics with focus on some geometrical and computational aspects. My interests are all sorts of numerical methods and discretization techniques for Scientific Computing and Computer Graphics. I graduated from the PhD program in Applied Mathematics at NJIT in May 2018 and accepted an appointment as a PostDoctoral Research Associate at the University of Colorado at Boulder under the supervision of Jed Brown within the CEED (Center for Efficient Exascale Discretization) project.
