Pierpaolo Soravia obtained a degree in mathematics in 1986 from the University of Padova, Italy, and Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 1992 from the Universities of Bologna and Padova. Soravia served as a Research Associate in 1990, tenured in 1993, Associate Professor in 1998, and a Professor in 2001. Soravia is also the author of 33 papers in international journals and 10 in volumes with referees and collaborators like M.G. Crandall and P.E. Souganidis. Soravia’s MathSciNet counts are 348 citations by 203 authors. He was an invited speaker at 26 international conferences. He paid long-term visits to the Division of Applied Mathematics, the Brown University, USA, 1992-93, the Department of Mathematics, University of California at Santa Barbara, 1994-95, the Center of Nonlinear Analysis, Carnegie Mellon University, 1997, and the Department of Mathematics, Australian National University, Canberra, 1998. He acted also as an invited speaker at workshops of the Geometry Center of Minneapolis, USA, the FORTH Heraklion, Crete, the Courant institute of New York, USA, the PIMS in Vancouver, Canada, the IHP in Paris, France, and the University of Tokyo, Japan. Soravia’s research interests concern nonlinear differential equations and viscosity solutions theory and applications. Soravia’s most recent research concerns the general theory of viscosity solutions of first- and second-order Hamilton-Jacobi equations, in particular with discontinuous coefficients, dynamic programming method in optimal control and differential games, and minimization of functionals in Aronsson equation.
