May 2021

I have been invited to present and discuss my contribution Diffusion-induced instabilities in soft solid sheets at the symposium The Physics of Elastic Films: from Biological Membranes to Extreme Mechanics at Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics@University of California - Santa Barbara.

My video presentation is visible HERE.

April 7- April 28, 2021

I will chair with Jacopo Ciambella a series of Wednesday webinars on the topic "Mechanics and remodeling in anisotropic inelastic materials". The webinars have been promoted by the PHD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering @ Sapienza Università di Roma. You can register HERE for the ZOOM link.

We got the MAECI co-funding of the research project MICROENCAPSULATION BASED ON INTELLIGENT ACTIVELY-REMODELING BIO POLYMER GELS FOR CONTROLLED DRUG RELEASE (PAMM), a joint project with Anne Bernheim@Ben Gurion University at Negev (Israel)

November 13 - December 11, 2020

I chaired a series of Friday webinars on the topic "Mechanical morphing of active gels". The webinars have been promoted by the PHD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics @ Sapienza Università di Roma and by the PRIN on Mathematics of active materials: from mechanobiology to smart devices @ Università Roma Tre.

October 7, 2020

I delivered a seminar about my recent research on FIBRE REORIENTATION IN ACTIVE MATERIALS in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at the Virginia Tech, VA (US).

September 2020

My video presentation on INSTABILITIES DRIVEN BY CONTROLLED RELEASE IN SPHERICAL MICROCAPSULES uploaded at the Virtual Tecnical Meeting 2020 of the Society of Engineering Science (SES) will be visible.
