## Research

I am interested in developing mathematical models describing the joint evolution of active and passive populations. We investigate two distinct descriptions:

(1) a continuous one with deterministic dynamics (i.e. a PDE system coupling fast-slow flows in porous media via Forchheimer-like equations coupled with diffusion via non-linear interaction terms),

(2) a discrete one with Monte Carlo stochastic dynamics (i.e. a gas dynamics formalism involving two species driven by different dynamics competing via simple exclusion processes for the same lattice).

Our ultimate goal is to unite these descriptions into a multiscale, hybrid (coupled deterministic/stochastic) evolution system. We provide mathematical analysis and simulation results for parts of the proposed models.

## Collaboration

This work is done jointly with my supervisor Prof. Adrian Muntean (Karlstad, Sweden), Prof. Emilio Cirillo (Rome, Italy) together with Assoc. Prof. Matteo Colangeli (L'Aquila, Italy).

## Bio

I graduated my Master 2 in Applied Mathematics with the University of Orleans (France). After that, I have enrolled a PhD position at Gran Sasso Science Institute, L'Aquila, Italy in 2016. Via a double degree agreement, I became a PhD student in Mathematics with also Karlstad University.
