Pietro Benedusi


I am a computational mathematician focusing on numerical analysis and PDEs modelling through large-scale simulations, particularly for applications in solar physics, neuroscience, and electrophysiology.

Research interests

  • Polarized radiative transfer, performing large 3D simulations from MHD models to better understand Sun magnetism.
  • Cell-by-cell models to efficiently simulate cellular dynamics at the micron scale in the brain.
  • Numerical Linear Algebra and the analysis of spectral properties of matrix sequences, with application to fast solvers.
  • High Performance Computing and design of scalable multilevel solutions for discretized PDEs.
  • Space-time and Parallel-in-time methods.
  • Ph.D., Computational Science, Università della Svizzera Italiana, 2020
  • M.A., Applied Mathematics and Computational Science, Università della Svizzera Italiana & ETH Zürich, 2015
  • B.S., Physics, University of Pavia, 2013
