Ph.D student of the XXV cycle of the Doctorate School in Environmental and Industrial Fluid Mechanics at University of Trieste (Italy)

My Ph.D thesis will be focused on the study of the existence, regularity and stability properties of critical points of functionals with linear growth with respect to the gradient at infinity. This functional and the associated Euler-Lagrange equations have been introduced the to describe situations where a flux limited diffusion term is used to model phenomena in which the gradient may become infinity at finite energy levels. I have worked on existence and stability results for the prescribed mean curvature/capillarity equation via lower and upper solutions and now I am looking for similar results for the evolutionary case.
