My research field concerns Applied Mathematics, specifically Numerical Analysis

and Scientific Computing. I have been working on biomedical models, in particular

for cancer invasion, that is the main topic in my research activity. I am also interested

in analysing mathematical models developed in the geophysical field, especially

related to the earthquakes study.
