Marco was born in Italy where he studied Aeronautical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. He then moved to London (UK) for his doctoral studies and to Stockholm (Sweden) and Tokyo (Japan) for his postgraduate research. His work focuses primarily on fluid dynamics problems, with particular emphasis on the study of multi-scale and multi-physics problems involving complex fluids and complex flows by means of numerical simulations; his main expertise is in multiphase and turbulent flows, Non-Newtonian fluids and fluid-solid interaction, with applications ranging from turbulent flows over complex walls to suspensions of rigid and deformable particles and filaments.
