Piero Chiaia is a PhD student at the Polytechnic University of Turin. In July 2020, he earned with honours the Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at Polytechnic University of Bari, discussing a thesis in Fluid Dynamics entitled "Numerical simulation of shock wave-boundary layer interaction in supersonic flows". In October 2022, he got with honours the Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Polytechnic University of Bari, discussing a thesis on Fluid-structure Interaction and Multi-field problems entitled "Advanced finite elements for the large displacement (and large strains) analysis of materials and structures". In November 2022, he started a PhD program in Mechanical Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin in collaboration with the MUL2 research group under the supervision of prof. Alfonso Pagani and prof. Maria Cinefra (DMMM – Polytechnic University of Bari). His research project is focused on the implementation of CUF-refined models for hyperelasticity, large strains analysis, multi-physics problems involving soft materials and fluid-structure interaction applications.
