Personal Profile of Dr. Cesare Tronci

I obtained a Laurea in Nuclear Engineering in May 2004 at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy). Then, after spending two years (06/2003 - 05/2005) at CERN (Switzerland) working on microwave electronics under the direction of Ugo Amaldi (also at TU M√ľnchen and TERA Foundation), I moved to the Theoretical Division (in the former Plasma Theory Group) of the Los Alamos National Lab (LANL, USA), where I visited Giovanni Lapenta (now at KU Leuven, Belgium) for several months. In 10/2005, I entered a PhD program in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College, under the direction of Darryl Holm. In my thesis, I worked on geometric analogies between kinetic theory and porous media equations to model the aggregation of ferromagnetic nanoparticles. Between 2006 and 2007, I also spent two summers at LANL, working with Bruce Carlsten in the former International, Space & Response Division (High Power Electrodynamics Group). In 09/2008, I joined the Mathematics Section of EPF Lausanne (Switzerland) as a research assistant in Tudor Ratiu's group (Geometric Analysis). In 01/2012, I was appointed at Surrey as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) and I became Reader (Associate Professor) in 08/2018. Over the last ten years, I have been working on geometric approaches to the formulation of nonlinear multi-physics models systems with multiple scales. Applications include complex fluids, plasma physics and molecular dynamics.
