Dalila Vescovi completed her PhDin Environmental Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in Italy, with a thesis titled “Granular shear flows: constitutive modeling and numerical simulations”. Previously, she studied Mathematical Engineering in the same university (M.Sc. in 2010) and Civil Engineering at Università degli studi di Perugia, Italy (B.Sc. in 2006). She is currently working as a Post-doc in the Multi-Scale Mechanics group of the University of Twente, Netherlands. Her research focuses on flow behavior and jamming transition in granular systems, and is carried out by performing numerical simulations and developing a constitutive, theoretical model based on kinetic theories of granular gases.
- Rheology of granular flows; constitutive modeling of particulate materials;
- Kinetic theory of granular gases; granular hydrodynamics;
- Flow regimes and jamming transition;
- Critical state soil mechanics; granular avalanches and landslides.
