L. Donatella Marini will be visiting the SRI Uncertainty Quantification Center during the period Apr. 24 - May. 1, 2014.
Bldg. 1, Level 4, Room 4200-CU02Biography
L. Donatella Marini graduated in Mathematics at the University of Pavia in 1970, then was researcher of C.N.R. at the Istituto di Analisi Numerica in Pavia (now IMATI-CNR) from April 1, 1973 to October 31, 1990. After winning a professorship position in Numerical Analysis she joined the University of Genova from November 1, 1990 to October 31, 1993, and then she moved to the University of Pavia since November 1, 1993. Her scientific production consists of about 90 scientific papers, mainly on Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations: Finite elements of various kinds (conforming, non-conforming, hybrid, mixed, and in the last decade Discontinuous Galerkin methods) for different applications (semiconductor device simulation, electromagnetism, fluid-dynamics, structural mechanics). In the last year she was among the developers of a new methodology, the Virtual Element Method, particularly well suited for the approximation of Pde’s on polygonal/polyhedral meshes.
