Sauro Succi is an Italian scientist, internationally credited for being one of the founders of the successful Lattice Boltzmann method for fluid dynamics.[1] Since 1995, Succi has been Research Director at the Istituto Applicazioni Calcolo of the National Research Council (CNR) in Rome.[2]

He is also a Research Affiliate to the Physics Department at Harvard University (from 2000), Fellow of the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) and Senior Fellow of the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics.

He is an alumnus 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 Harvard, 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 Killam Award bestowed by the University of Calgary (2005) and the Raman Chair of the Indian Academy of Sciences (2011). He as also served as an External Senior Fellow at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (2009-2013), Senior Fellow of the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in Vienna (2013) and Weston Chair at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot (2016).

Dr Succi is an elected member of the Academia Europaea (2015).

He has been awarded the 2017 APS Aneesur Rahman Prize for Computational Physics.

In 2017 he has been awarded the ERC Advanced Grant "Computational design of porous mesoscale materials (COPMAT)".
