Alfonso Pagani is professor assistant at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Politecnico di Torino. Alfonso’s research activities are related to the development of refined models for aerospace structures; composites; aeroelasticity and FSI; numerical methods; multi-field problems; geometrical nonlinearities and post-buckling. He is the co-author of some 70 publications, including 35 articles in International Journals.

Alfonso serves as assistant editor for Advances in Aircraft and Spacecraft Structures, an Int’l Journal edited by Techno-Press. Also, he has recently been appointed adjunct professor in Fundamentals of Strength of Materials (BSc in Mechanical Engineering at the Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent, Uzbekistan).

Pagani earned a Ph.D. in Structural Dynamics at City University of London in 2016 and, earlier, a Ph.D. in Fluid-dynamics at Politecnico di Torino.  He gained an MSc and a BSc in Aerospace Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in December 2011 and October 2009, respectively. Alfonso spent research periods at Purdue University in 2016, where he worked on the implementation of advanced models for micro-structural analysis with Prof. W. Yu; RMIT Melbourne in 2014, where he developed models for flutter analysis and gust response of composite lifting surfaces; at Universidade do Porto in 2013, where he carried out investigations about the use of RBFs for the solution of equations of motion of refined beam models; at London City University in 2012, where he formulated higher-order, exact, DSM-based 1D models for metallic and composite structures.
