I'm a theoretical material scientist, working at the crossroads between solid-state physics, computational material science and applied mathematics. My research focuses on the continuum and mescoscale modeling of material properties, mainly by using Linear Elasticity Theory, Phase-Field and Amplitude Phase-Field Crystal models with the aid of Finite Element Method calculations. Particular attention has been devoted to the study of nano- and microstructures made of semiconductors, involving the role of free surfaces in elastic relaxation, the competitive mechanisms between plasticity and elasticity and the morphological evolution induced by processing. I collaborate with several experimental groups to understand and predict results of technology-relevant processes such as dewetting and crystal growth.
