- Interplay between two phase flow and rock mechanics: Exploring the rheology of melt-rock mixtures
I graduated from the University of Padova (Italy) with a BSc and MSc in geology. I became interested in fluid dynamics during my semester at ETH Zurich in the first year of my master, where I studied the viscous flow of the Earth’s mantle. After going back to Padova, my research in this topic continued with the study of the viscosity of two-phase earth materials.
I am interested in applications of fluid dynamics in Earth Sciences, in particular viscosity of rocks and flows in geological media.
Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics
As I was interested in numerical modelling and simulations of flows, I felt like I needed more mathematical knowledge. Multidisciplinary and the cohort approach were also two interesting aspects.
