Research group: Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry
I am a PhD student at the Institute of Environmental Assasment and Water Research (IDAEA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). I am enrolled in the Doctoral Program in Civil Engeneering of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).
I was a student at "La Sapienza" University of Rome and I graduated both for my BSc and MSc there.
My bachelor and master involved Geotechnical Engineering as the main topic. During the bachelor thesis I had the opportunity to study some phenomena resulting from the seismic risk on the earth dams.
During the master thesis I faced the numerical modelling of deep foundation using the Material Point Method (MPM), considered an update of the classic FEM. I worked with Deltares Research Institute (Delft, NH) at the unit of Geo-engineering, department Soil and Structures to make the MPM code more friendly and validate it in two particular cases of pile installation.
Between the 5th and the 8th of June 2018 I participated at the International Conference on Deep Foundation and Ground Improvement organized in Rome by the Deep Foundation Institute (DFI). Since January 2020 I am a member of the Italian Geotechnical Association (AGI).
My eld of research involves environmental, mechanical and materials engineering as well as numerical mechanics.
