Maria Lucia Sampoli graduated in Mathematics with Honors at the University of Florence in 1994, and in 1998 received a PhD in Computational Mathematics and Operative Research from University of Milan. In the same year she got a postdoc fellowship at the Institute of Applied Geometry of the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany). In 1999-2000 she was a CNR Senior Fellow at Department of
Mathematics of the University of Siena, where she initially became a Research Assistant and later in 2002 a tenured Assistant Professor in Numerical Analysis. In 2010 she joined the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics where she is currently Associate Professor in Numerical Analysis.
Her research interests are mainly focused on the use of splines functions in various applications, from shape preserving interpolation and approximation to numerical approximation of elliptic problems (Isogeometic Analysis), quasi-interpolations techniques, Numerical quadrature, and Phythagorean curves and surfaces.
M.L. Sampoli has been invited speaker (as a plenary or as a speaker at minisimposia) at several international conferences as well as
involved in the organization of various conferences and workshops. She has been in many research projects, and in some of them as
