I am Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and in the Center for Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling at the University of Maryland, College Park.

I got my PhD in 1998 at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, under the supervision of Giuseppe Da Prato. I have been working at the University of Florence until 2008, when I moved to the University of Maryland.

I am currently working on different properties of systems with multiple scales, that are described by stochastic partial differential equations. More specifically, I am dealing with the small noise asymptotics of those systems, their long time behavior, averaging phenomena, singular perturbation results etc. In particular, I am interested in understanding how all these aspects of the dynamics interplay one with the others.
