Matteo Icardi is an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Nottingham, in the School of Mathematical Sciences, and member of the GeoEnergy Research Centre (GERC). His research sits at the interface between numerical mathematics, physical modelling and computational engineering. He previously held a Zeeman Lectureship at the Warwick Mathematics Institute and postdoctoral research positions across the globe: at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) of the University of Texas at Austin, in the Uncertainty Quantification centre of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and in the Groundwater Engineering group at Politecnico di Torino.
Matteo's research focuses on multi-scale simulation, uncertainty quantification and model reduction with applications for a wide range of areas involving porous media, subsurface flows, and filtration processes. In particular, he has worked on the validation and upscaling of pore-scale models, on the modelling of reactive, non-Fickian transport models, and on nanotechnologies.
For SECURe, as Work Package 4 lead, Matteo leads the team responsible for developing integrated simulation, monitoring, and data assimilation techniques for CCS and shale gas applications.
