Giacomo Albi is Associate Professor of Numerical Analysis at the Department of Computer Science, University of Verona. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Ferrara. He was recipient of the 2014 Copernico award and the UMI-INdAM-SIMAI 2017 prize. He worked at TU Munich on the project "High-Dimensional Sparse Optimal Control". His research focuses on numerical methods for kinetic equations, hyperbolic balance laws, and control of multi-agent systems.
Walter Boscheri is Associate Professor of Numerical Analysis at the University of Ferrara, Italy. His research is concerned with the development and implementation of numerical methods for partial differential equations on fixed and moving unstructured meshes. He designs novel high order finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin schemes with structure- and asymptotic-preserving properties applied to continuum mechanics, including implicit-explicit time discretizations.
Mattia Zanella is Associate Professor of Mathematical Physics at the Department of Mathematics "F. Casorati" of the University of Pavia. He was recipient of the Copernico award in 2018 and the Anile Prize in 2019. In 2019 he got a fellowship from the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics. His research interests are focused on uncertainty quantification, optimal control and kinetic modelling of collective phenomena with applications in physics and life science.
