Born in a small town of China, I traveled to Xi'an (Xi'an Jiaotong Univ) for B.E., to Nanjing (Southeast Univ) for the M.E., to Sydney (The Univ of Syd) for the PhD, and finally Stockholm as a postdoc.
I am driven by my curiosity, and currently focus on the multiphase flows in porous media. Love coding, love exploring various possibilities.
Since I joined the group, I aim to study how surfactants influence the flow dynamics over Liquid-Infused Surfaces (LIS). Despite being difficult to measure and everywhere present, those chemicals induce critical changes even at microscopic concentrations and adversely impact the drag-reduction property of LIS.
I was born in Magenta, Italy, in 1994. I studied Mathematical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, obtaining the Bachelor of Science in 2016 and the Master of Science in 2019, with a small interlude as Erasmus student at TU Delft. My background is mainly computational; since I realized in the late stages of my studies that I enjoyed delving into physics as well as mathematics, I started to direct myself towards computational physics. My master thesis revolved around implementing a particle method for a generalized Boltzmann equation, with application in microfluidics. My Ph.D. research work focuses on molecular simulations aimed to investigate dynamic wetting phenomena; in particular, I am interested in understanding what are the molecular processes affecting the stability and mobility of three-phases contact lines.
