Giampietro is a quantitative analyst at the Derivative Research & Validation team of Rabobank International. He has a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the Delft University of Technology and a cum laude university degree in Mechanical Engineering from Roma Tre University.

During his PhD he performed research in the field of numerical methods for Aerodynamic Shape Optimization. His expertise includes the development of: Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) solvers for 2D/3D unstructured grids (steady and unsteady flow); Adjoint-based solvers for efficient sensitivity analysis;  Optimization frameworks. Currently he has an interest for numerical methods in Finance (derivatives pricing using Monte Carlo or Finite Difference methods, efficient sensitivity analysis via the adjoint method and Automatic Differentiation).
