Personal Page Francesca Fantoni Francesca defended her thesis on "Fracture growth in brittle and embrittled materials: variational formulations and crack tracking algorithms" at University of Brescia (Italy) in 2016 as a Ph.D. student of "Methods and mathematical models for engineering applications" in Brescia. Currently she holds a post-doc position at m4lab, after a similar, one-year long position at IMT, Lucca, Italy. Personal Page Marco Magri He graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of Brescia (Italy) in 2014. Currently he is a Ph.D. student in the course "Methods and mathematical models for engineering applications" at the University of Brescia. His research focuses on the multiscale mechanics of materials due to diffusion of species and other multiphysics phenomena. He is currently conducting research on Lithium-ion batteries and Hydrogen embrittlement.
