I recently finished my post-doctorate in the group of prof. Alexandre Ern. I was affiliated to the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées and to INRIA Paris, SERENA group. My research was in the field of high-order methods for PDEs, and my specific subject was the development of high-performance computational codes supporting the recently devised HHO numerical method. My past research covered topics in electromagnetic compatibility, in particular in the field of the validation of radiated emission measurements through computer simulations.

Computational codes

I keep some of my code at GitHub, the profile name is datafl4sh. You may be interested in DiSk++ and Proton, which are two numerical libraries that I developed.

Recently a little community formed around these libraries, so I am not the only developer anymore. You can find all the details doing a git log on the repos.

  • DiSk++: A template library for discontinuous skeletal methods. This code is a development platform for polyhedral discretization methods like dG, HDG and HHO. The code is capable of solving different problems like:
    • Scalar diffusion [hal]
    • Highly oscillatory elliptic problems using Multiscale HHO [hal]
    • Linear elasticity
    • Eigenvalue problems [hal]
    • Hyperelasticity [hal]
    • Plasticity [hal]
    • Bingham flows [hal]
    • Signorini contact problems
    • Obstacle problems
    • More to come!!!
  • ProtoN: A library for fast Prototyping of Numerical methods. This library was born initially as a throw-away code to explore some other implementation possibilities for the HHO methods, however later started to be useful and it contains a preliminary implementation of the obstacle problem and a preliminary implementation of the Unfitted HHO [hal].

  • A Matlab demo for the 1D HHO method is available here.

Other activities

  • Assistant supervisor of the thesis of Francesco D’Orlandi. Main supervisor prof. Marino Miculan. In his thesis Francesco explored some other development paths of the work I did in my master thesis.
