Sauro Succi is an Italian scientist, internationally credited for being one of the founders of the successful Lattice Boltzmann method for fluid dynamics.[citation needed] Since 1995, Succi has been Research Director at the Istituto Applicazioni Calcolo of the National Research Council (CNR) in Rome. He is also a Research Affiliate to the Physics Department at Harvard University (from 2000) and a Fellow of the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS).

He is an alum of the University of Bologna, from which he earned a degree in nuclear engineering, and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, from which he obtained a PhD in plasma physics in 1987.

He has published extensively in plasma physics, fluid dynamics, kinetic theory and quantum fluids.

He has also authored the well-known monograph "The lattice Boltzmann equation for fluid dynamics and beyond", (Oxford Univ. Press.) [1] .

Dr Succi has been holding visiting/teaching appointments at many academic Institutions, such as the University of Paris VI, University of Chicago, Yale, Tufts, Queen Mary London and Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.

Dr Succi is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society (1998). He has received the Humboldt Prize in physics (2002), the Killiam Award bestowed by the University of Calgary (2005) and the Raman Chair of the Indian Academy of Sciences (2011).

Dr Succi belongs to the list of the Top Italian Scientists [2].
