My work is in the field of applied mathematics and mathematical physics with focus on the role of geometric and topological properties of dynamical systems in relation with energy and structural complexity of fluid systems. My research interests regard the following thematic areas:
Work on relationships between energy and structural complexity of dynamical systems, such as vortex tangles and networks of magnetic fields, in terms of geometric, algebraic and topological information.
Aim: to establish relations between dynamical and energy contents and morphological information by analytical means.
Undergraduate and Graduate Courses given at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Courses occasionally given abroad. Recent Progress in Topological Fluid Dynamics (Ravello, 2017).
My work is in the field of applied mathematics and mathematical physics of topologically complex fluid systems (see Research Interests).
Current research is focused on applications of geometric and topological methods to study morphological aspects of classical and quantum vortex tangles, magnetic fields, knotted and linked defects in quantum systems of hydrodynamic type with the aim to establish relations between fundamental properties of structural complexity and dynamical and energy aspects of such systems (see Current Projects).
Scientific research and international collaborations are promoted through the active organisation of advanced schools, meetings and long-term intensive research programmes in dedicated research centres and institutes (see Advanced Schools and International Programmes). Scientific results are published in primary journals in the field (see Publications) and disseminated through web-seminar and lectures freely accessible online.
