Contact Dr Salvatore Filippone
Areas of expertise
Dr. Filippone has an MSc in computer engineering and a PhD in Mathematics, both from the University of Rome "Tor Vergata".
Prior to joining Cranfield he has held positions with IBM Co., where he was a lead developer of the ESSL scientific software products, and at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, where he has taught introductory programming and introductory numerical analysis to engineering undergraduate, and advanced computational methods to graduate students.
Dr. Filippone is the Leader of the "Software Engineering for Tchnical Computing" option of the MSc in Computational Software Techniques for Engineering.
He specializes in software to solve complex problems requiring sophisticated numerical algorithms that will stretch the number crunching abilities of a given machine to their utmost capacity.
