PhD student in Applied Mathematics

Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions


I am a PhD student in Applied Mathematics at the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions (LJLL) and Università di Roma Tor Vergata. I am working under the supervision of Benoît Perthame (LJLL) and Roberto Natalini (Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo, CNR, Rome). I am also member of the INRIA team MAMBA.

My research interests concern tumoral modeling analysed through an analytical and a numerical viewpoint. In particular, I am interested in membrane problems. My background includes Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Biology.
