Davide is certainly a top professor in the world. Unfortunately there are low class professors both in Italy, and even in MIT.  Davide is extremely brilliant despite the difficult conditions sometimes we suffer in Italy, and the incomparably lower amount of funding that we generallz dispose, with respect to, say, MIT.

 

It is by no surprise that from Davide school the new generation of Harvard and MIT professors are coming... eg

You say

Instabilities and nonlocal multiscale modelling of materials

Is it also friction?  I am working for example on the slow fronts of friction that Fineberg published in Nature a few times since 2004.  Could that be of interest? It is nonlocal in the sense of asperity modelling and multiscale too.

 Kindly requested for any suggestion.

Dear Michele,

Thanks for the compliments.Yes, friction definitely IS a topic in my erc.

Best!

Dear Awani,

Please, address your question to my former PhD student (now postdoc at Yale) Sara Roccabianca: sara.roccabianca@yale.edu

She will help you.

Best wishes,

Davide

Thank you sir

For example, I am working on friction models...See these results by Bouchbinder and Fineberg.

By using a BB model modified with inclined slider, we found super-slow fronts, which do not need strengthening of friction, which was the part Bouchbinder never convinced me of....

 

more to come.... if you are interested!
