My research area is the study of partial differential equations, in particular I am interested in the analysis of problems motivated by applications in Physics and Biology. In particular, I am interested in the study of models of cellular aggregation induced by chemotaxis (cf. [10], [2], [3]). In recent times I become interested in the study of aggregation of biological organisms induced by nondiffusive cell to cell interactions (cf. [6], [4]).
I am also interested in the study of kinetic equations with particle fluxes between the different regions of the phase space characterizing the system (cf. [9], [8]).

Research Area B One of my research directions is the study of pattern formation, in particular aggregation patterns in biological systems (cf. [1], [2], [3]). In these papers questions related to the formation of singularities for classical models describing chemotaxis in biological systems. Recently, I have studied the patterns that arise in models in which the interactions between organisms take place by means of local signals (cf. [4], [5], [6]).
I am also interested in the study of coagulation models as well as kinetic models with fluxes of particles between different regions of the phase space. Wellposedness results for coagulation equations as well as for the quantum Boltzmann equation can be found in [7], [8], [9], as well as in other forthcoming papers.
