I graduated from the University of Ferrara (Italy) with PhD in Mathematics and an MS in Engineering of Materials. Before joining the University of Maine in 2023, I served on the faculty of the University of Houston (TX), Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IN), Université de Strasbourg (France), and the University of Missouri (MO).
My research focuses on mathematical modeling and data science applied to engineering and life sciences. I collaborate with many colleagues nationally and internationally in areas such as ocular blood flow and risk factors associated with ocular diseases; function of the lower urinary tract; and noninvasive health monitoring. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Health and the European Commission. I am a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.
I am a co-founder of Modeling and Artificial Intelligence in Ophthalmology (Kugler Publications, the Netherlands), an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal for which I serve as co-Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor.
I am the founder of Gspace LLC, a consulting company providing modeling and computational solutions for complex problems in engineering and life sciences.
