Roberto Paoli’s interests are in theoretical and computational fluid dynamics. He is specialized in CFD modeling and high-performance computing of complex fluids, including turbulent reacting and two-phase flows. He studied aerothermodynamics of high-speed flows in non-equilibrium for hypersonic applications. He currently works on turbulence modeling and simulation of atmospheric flows on massively parallel architectures with a focus on environmental and geophysical applications such as the modeling of emissions from aircraft engines and their environmental impact.
