he has been an invited speaker at ICM 2002 in Beijing and plenary speaker
at ICM 2006 in Madrid. Among his awards and honors are: the NASA Group
Achievement Award for pioneering work in Computational Fluid Dynamics
in 1992, the Premio Capo D’Orlando 2006, the Ghislieri prize, 2013, the
International Galileo Galilei prize for Sciences 2015, and The Euler lecture
in 2017. He is the Recipient of two ERC Advanced Grants: “MATHCARD”,
2008, and “i-HEART”, 2017, and of two ERC PoC (Proof of Concept) grants in
2012 and 2015; Recipient of the Galileian Chair from the Scuola Normale
Superiore, Pisa, Italy, 2001; doctor Honoris Causa in Naval Engineering from
University of Trieste, Italy, 2003; SIAM Fellow (first row) since 2009; and IACM
(International Association of Computational Mechanics) Fellow since 2004.
He is a member of the Italian Academy of Science, the European Academy
of Science, the Academia Europaea, the Lisbon Academy of Sciences, and
the IMU Circle. His research interests concern Mathematical Modelling,
Numerical Analysis, and Scientific Computing, and have application to
fluid mechanics, geophysics, medicine and the improvement of sports
performance. His research group at EPFL has contributed to the preliminary
design of Solar Impulse, the Swiss long-range experimental solar-powered
aircraft project; his research group at EPFL has carried out the mathematical
simulation for the optimisation of performances of the Alinghi yacht, the
winner of two editions (2003 and 2007) of the America’s Cup.
