CV in brief

The research of Carolina Beccari is focused on geometric modeling, interpolation, subdivision schemes, splines, approximation theory, and Computer-Aided Design (CAD).

She has authored several papers on construction and analysis of non-stationary, non-uniform and monotonicity preserving subdivision schemes. As an expert insubdivision schemes, in 2011 she has been appointed as a visiting professor at the group CAGD-CGAO of the University of Valenciennes (FR).

She is interested in the study of mono-and multivariate spline functions, also collaborating with the Center for Constructive Approximation at Vanderbilt University (USA), where she spent several research periods.

She investigates the integration of subdivision surfaces in CAD systems. On this subject she has participated in funded projects and collaborated with companies of international importance. She is co-author of the software module on subdivision surfaces integrated into the system ThinkDesign of think3.

She has presented numerous, also invited, talks at national and international conferences and received grants for research projects, research visits and for attending specialized courses.

She works as a referee for international journals and selection committees.

She has performed teaching activity for several courses of Scientific Calculus, Numerical Analysis, and Computer Science and she has supervised several bachelor and master theses in Mathematics and Computer Science.
