My current research interests are:
(I) Advanced manufacturing of steel structures by means of Laser Cutting Technology and Additive Manufacturing.
(II) Static, dynamic and fatigue assessment of steel and composite steel-concrete structures.
(III) Replacable dissipative devices and seismic isolation techniques to enhance the seismic behaviour and sustainability performance of steel structures (buildings and industrial systems such as silos and tasks).
(IV) Seismic analysis of ordinary steel and steel-concrete composite structures in low-to-moderate seismicity regions.
(V) Racking systems and automated warehouses made of cold formed steel profiles: Seismic behaviour, Fatigue performance.
I have published more than 60 articles in high-end international journals and peer-reviewed conferences (Scopus: 152 citations / h-index 7). I won two awards in International Steel Design and Concrete design competitions. I wrote and co-authored several research proposals which obtained €1M+ in grants from the European Commission and participated in several EU-Horizon 2020 projects with the roles of coordinator, technical lead and team member. All these tasks were performed within EU-funded research projects in multi-disciplinary collaboration with numerous international research institutes and companies.
I have national scientific qualification (“habilitation”) in Italy since 2018 (ASN, 08/B3, Fascia II).
I have academic and communication fluency in Italian, English, and Turkish languages.
