Curriculum Vitae

2018: Laurea cum laude in Civil Engineering, Curriculum Structures – Ma.SC. (University of Florence)

2018 – present: Ph.D. Fellowship in the International Doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering, 34° cycle (University of Florence with joint agreement with Norwegian university of Science and technologies (NTNU)). Thesis Supervisors: Proff. Claudio Mannini and Massimiliano Gioffré (Italian side), Prof. Ole Andre Øiseth and Prof. Emeritus Arvid Næss (Norwegian side).

Fields of Interest

Analytical modelling of aeroelastic phenomena. In my research plan, a nonlinear numerical model to predict the coupled buffeting response of long span bridge in turbulent wind will be performed.

Experimental Fluid Mechanics & Dynamics: During the Ph.D. project, static and aeroelastic tests to determine the static coefficients and dynamic derivatives of bridge deck will be performed. In these tests, the influence of large angle of attack due to large scale turbulence is considered.

Experiences abroad

2019 August – 2020 February Research period at the NTNU of Trondheim (Norway) on the topic of my PhD project, under the supervision of Prof. Ole Andre Øiseth and Prof. Emeritus Arvid Næss.
