Daniele Casati

Welcome to my website!

My name is Daniele Casati and
in December 2019 I defended a PhD at ETH Zurich, Seminar of Applied Mathematics.
Here you can download my PhD thesis,
here my research reports.

Before my PhD I worked for two years as a quantitative risk analyst in banking and reinsurance.

My education includes a Master’s degree in scientific computing at ETH Zurich and a Bachelor's degree in physics at the University of Pavia.
I have always been economically independent during my university studies thanks to scholarships.

Please feel free to drop me an email.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

PhD defense at ETH Zurich,
Seminar of Applied Mathematics

Coupling finite elements and auxiliary sources

Coupled two numerical techniques, the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the Method of Auxiliary Sources (MAS), to solve Maxwell's equations encompassing material inhomogeneities without artificially truncating the computational domain.
Compared to the Boundary Element Method, MAS does not include singular integrals in its formulation and present exponential convergence of the approximation error.


Master’s thesis at Singapore-ETH Centre, Future Cities Laboratory and ETH Zurich, IVT

Hierarchical population generation in transportation modelling

Developed a Markov Chain Monte Carlo method to simulate populations gathered into households for transportation modelling.
