Fumagalli Alessio

Visit duration time (from – to): 15 October 2018 - 14 August 2019
Affiliation: University of Bergen, Norway
Host Department: DISMA - Department of Mathematical Sciences

Alessio Fumagalli is currently Postdoctoral Researcher in the academic field of numerical analysis, academic discipline in numerical methods and mathematical modeling for flow in fractured porous media. Department of Mathematics, University of Bergen, Norway. Prof. Fumagalli has worked in 3 European countries (Italy, France, Norway) and has an international collaboration record of 11 research groups at universities, research institutes, and private companies in 5
countries (Italy, France, Norway, Portugal, Germany). His publications have received significant attention by the scientific community citing two papers more than 50 times each (Google Scholar). In total he has 14
journal publications and 4 conference proceedings. In the last years, he has collaborated with several members of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Politecnico di Torino, with great mutuai benefits. The
research project is focused on the mathematical modeling and numerical solution for hydro-mechanical phenomena in fractured porous media. There are several numerical and modelinq challenges, mainly related to complex fracture networks in the rock matrix which make standard techniques inapplicable to give accurate solutions in a reasonable time. A pressure variation may stimulate a mechanical change, which will induce an alteration of the fracture aperture and thus a change in the pressure, leading to a coupled system.
