I am an assistant professor on various research topics related to the development of refined structural models of composite structures. My research activity deals with the structural analysis of composite lifting surfaces; refined beam, plate and shell models; component-wise approaches and axiomatic/asymptotic analyses.
I was Research Fellow at the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. I earned a PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino in April 2012, discussing a thesis on Advanced aeroelastic models for the analysis of lifting surfaces made of composite materials. I gained an MSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino, an MSc in Aerospace Engineering at the TU Delft (The Netherlands) and a BSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino. I worked as an intern at EADS (Germany). I am a Fulbright alumnus and, as a Fulbrighter, spent research periods at the San Diego State University (USA) and at the University of Michigan (USA). I was appointed Adjunct Professor in Fundamentals of Strength of Materials (BSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent, Uzbekistan).
I was involved in the executive committee of the 23rd AIDAA Conference on Aeronautics and Astronautics (www.aidaa2015.it
). I served as a local organizer of the First International Conference on Mechanics of Nano, Micro and Macro Composite Structures, Torino (ITALY), 18-20 June 2012. I was editor and local organizer of the 6th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on Smart Structures and Materials (SMART2013), Torino (ITALY), 24-26 June 2013. I was a member of the scientific committee of the first International Conference on Mechanics of Composites (MECHCOMP2014), Atlanta (USA), 8-11 June 2014.
