Welcome to my homepage !

I was born in Milan (Italy). I graduated in theoretical physics at the University of Milan and did my PhD at the University of Oregon (USA) with Russ J. Donnelly and then moved to Birmingham in the UK to work with Joe Vinen. I have been Professor at Newcastle University since 1997.

I am fascinated by vortices at all length scales: from vortices in ordinary (classical) fluids such as water or air, to vortices in astrophysical fluids and plasmas, to quantum vortices in atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and in superfluid helium (He4 and He3). In am particularly interested in quantum turbulence and in the similarities / differences between quantum turbulence and ordinary classical turbulence.

For my work on quantum fluids and quantum vortices, I have been elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2009 and Fellow of the Institute of Physics in 2002. I have been a member of the EPSRC College since 2006.
