Academic discipline: MAT/07 Mathematical Physics

Curriculum vitae

She got the degree in Physics cum laude in 1991 at the University of Bologna and the PHD in Physics in 1995 at the same University.
At present she is Associate Professor of Mathematical Physics at the Engineering Faculty of the Bologna University. In the past she won two annual fellowships at the FISBAT- CNR Bologna from 1997 to 1999. From 1999 to 2001 she was fellow of the Mathematical Department of Bologna University. She became University Researcher in Mathematical Physics in 2001 and Associate Professor in 2006.
Brini is a member of the Gruppo Nazionale di Fisica Matematica of Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica and of the International Society for the Interaction of Mechanics and Mathematics (ISIMM).
She participated and presented her contribution (sometimes on invitation) to many workshops and international conferences.
Her research activity is related to both dynamical systems and, more recently, to non-linear propagation and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. In the last years she worked on these topics both from an analytical and a numerical point of view, obtaining relevant results concerning problems on bounded domains and the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of dissipative hyperbolic systems with convex entropy.
