TEACHING

I taught several courses, mostly Calculus and Advanced Calculus for Physicists and Engineers. I wrote several notes of my course, which are freely downloadable from the University site. I also taught several Ph.D. courses at the University of Ferrara and a University course (2009, Systems of conservation laws) at the University of Hamburg.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

My scientific research is focused on partial differential equations; I wrote more than 70 research papers on scientific journals, both on theoretical and applied subjects. Among the latter ones, I studied problems arising from gasdynamics, ionized gases, phase transitions, combustion, traffic flows, chromatography, optics beams, networks with valves, epidemics spreading, thin films. Here follow in chronological order the main themes:

• Linear equations in Gevrey classes

• Weakly nonlinear geometric optics

• Systems of balance laws in one or several space dimensions

• Singular and nonsingular limits of degenerate parabolic equations or dispersive equations

• Traveling waves

I organized the Conference IperFe (2002) and a couple of workshops:

• Phase Transitions, Annual Scientific Conference of the “Gesellschaft fuer Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik” (2003),

• Mathematicians on the road: Mathematical Models for Traffic Flows, 9th SIMAI Congress (2008).
