Associate Professor @ University of Bologna
Associate Professor at the University of Bologna since 2014, his research fields includes plasma transport theory and the development of physical mathematical models for industrial applications of plasmas.
His main research interests are in the calculation of transport properties of plasma mixtures, modelling of plasma sources devices, multi-scale modelling nanomaterial synthesis and development of formal ontologies for plasma applications in the field of materials and modelling.
He participated to several national and international research projects and he’s been from 2015 to 2018 the Project Coordinator of H2020-NMP-20-2014 NanoDome, Nanomaterials via Gas-Phase Synthesis: A Design-Oriented Modelling and Engineering Approach (3 years, 4M€).
Since 1st January 2019 he is Project Coordinator of H2020-DT-NMBP-09-2018 SimDOME, Digital Ontology-based Modelling Environment for Simulation of materials (4 years, 4.6M€).
Member of the European Materials Modelling Council and main developer of the European Materials Modelling Ontology – EMMO.
Author of more than 60 papers on international journals with referee.
