Giulio Schimperna was born in Milan, Italy in July 1972. He obtained his degree in mathematics at Pavia University, Italy, in January 1995 and his Ph.D. degree in mathematics at Milan University, Italy, in January 2000. Since 2006, he works as an Associate Professor of mathematical analysis at Pavia University. He authored around 40 research papers published in international scientific journals. His scientific interests are mainly devoted to nonlinear partial differential equations of evolutionary type and, more specifically, to problems related to mathematical models in phase transitions, damaging, and thermomechanics. In that frame, he addressed various kinds of questions like well-posedness of the models, regularity of solutions, qualitative behavior, and large-time asymptotics. In the latest years, his activity was mainly directed towards the theory of infinite-dimensional dynamical systems, a research field that is nowadays very active and in rapid evolution. By using that approach, he obtained several results concerning the long-time evolution of the models of phase-field, of Cahn-Hilliard, and of Penrose-Fife, under various assumptions on the data and on the nonlinear terms significant for the physical applications.
