Gaetano Napoli is currently assistant professor of mathematical physics
at the Engineering Faculty of the Università del Salento. He was educated at the Università di Pisa (Master Degree in Physics) and at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Ph.D. in Mechanics). In the past years, he held post-doctoral positions at the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées and Politecnico di Milano. In this latter institution, he was appointed for two years adjunct professor of Rational Mechanics in the Faculty of Civil Engineering.
Napoli's research activities are mainly focused on soft matter mathematical
modeling with special regard to the behavior of liquid crystals and
biological vesicles in the continuum mechanics framework. The results
of these research activities are the object of papers
published IN international journals.
