After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Mathematical Engineering from Polytechnic University of Milan (PoliMi), I enrolled in the double degree master program between EPFL and PoliMi in Computational Science and Engineering. I am currently working on my master project under the supervision of Prof. Hesthaven, focusing on a possible application of neural networks in Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. As part of my master studies, I did a three-month internship at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, where I worked on the implementation of a DG solver.

Research interests

Numerical methods for PDEs, machine learning, high performance computing, computational fluid dynamics.
