My main research activity is focused on the study of complex fluids and biphasic systems using lattice Boltzmann numerical simulations. The most fascinating aspects of these model systems are their wide applicability: from the study of their properties across scales (microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic) a rich variety of physical phenomena can be explored, ranging from microfluidics, to the dynamics of earthquakes, to the heat transfer properties of dense suspensions.
Within the COPMAT project, I have been studying the properties of dense emulsions under strong confinement ad thermal effects.
