Short CV

Benedetta Franzelli is a Researcher of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the EM2C Laboratory (UPR288) at CentraleSupélec. Dr. Franzelli research interests are in theoretical, experimental, and numerical characterization of multi-phase turbulent reactive flows. At EM2C, she leads the investigation of soot and nano-particles production in turbulent flames using high-speed optical diagnostics and large eddy simulations in the framework of ERC Starting Grant SOTUF (2018-2024). She graduated at Politecnico di Milano (2007) and received her PhD from Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (CERFACS, 2011). As a Postdoctoral Fellow, she worked at the EM2C Laboratory (2012, 2013) and at the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University (2014). She has been the recipient of a Stanford Center for Turbulence Research PostDoctoral Fellowship (2012), the Bernard Lewis Fellowship from the Combustion Institute (2014), the Bronze Medal from CNRS (2018) and a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant (2018).
