Dr. Fossati is Chancellor’s fellow and lecturer at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the University of Strathclyde. His research interests are in the area of multiphysics computational aerodynamics. His expertise is in the field of numerical methods for aerodynamics with a focus on high-speed and non-equilibrium flows, Reduced Basis Methods for transonic regimes and mesh optimization and (re-)generation. At Strathclyde he is a member of the Aerospace Centre of Excellence (ACE) and coordinates the research in computational aerodynamics undertaken in the Laboratory for Future Air-Space Transportation Technologies (FASTT-Lab).
Prior to joining Strathclyde Dr. Fossati was Associate Director of the CFD Laboratory at McGill University in Canada where he currently holds an Adjunct Professor position. He has been visiting researcher at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He holds a PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics from Politecnico di Milano. He is member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, acts in the international advisory committee of the Parallel CFD conference, and serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Computational Physics, Physics of Fluids, AIAA Journal, International Journal of Multiphase Flows, Aerospace Science and Technology, Mathematics and Computers in Simulation and the International Journal of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
