Location: 127 Hayes-Healy Center

Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D in Applied Mathematics at the Ecole Polytecnique Fédérale de Lausanne, 2002. Dr. Zunino leads the Computational Biofluid Mechanics Laboratory active in the development of mathematical models and numerical approximation methods with application to engineering and life sciences. The current research projects, partially funded by NSF,NIH,DoE, include: the study of nonstandard finite element schemes for flow, transport and fluid-structure interaction; the application of such methods to forward and inverse problem formulations; computational modeling of multiphase flow and transport problems through heterogeneous media; computational modeling of microcirculation; computational modeling of fluid dynamics and drug release in biomedical devices. He has received the SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize, awarded by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, on July 2004. The prize, first awarded in 1999, is given to outstanding papers published in SIAM journals during the three years prior to the year of the award. He has co-authored the monograph “A Primer on PDEs, Models, Methods, Simulations” published by Springer on 2013.
