I am an assistant professor in the Department of Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering of Politecnico di Milano with scientific qualification (habilitation). In my research, I am interested in the following topics:

(I) Advanced manufacturing of structures using laser cutting, 3D printing and bio-inspired topology optimization.

(II) Smart structural design using machine learning.

(III) Earthquake and fatigue assessment of steel and composite steel-concrete structures.

(IV) Repairable components and seismic isolation for resilient and sustainable structures.

(V) Seismic and fatigue assessment of racking systems and automated warehouses made of cold-formed steel profiles.

I investigate these topics at component and full-scale levels by means of experimental tests and numerical simulation in collaboration with research institutes and industry.

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. I have published more than 30 articles in high-end international journals and peer-reviewed conferences.
