Enrico Zappino is a post-doctoral fellow at the Politecnico di Torino. He has been in Professor Carrera’s research group since 2010. His research activities concern structural analysis using classical and advanced models, multi-field analysis, and composite materials analysis. He is the coauthor of many works published in several international peer-reviewed journals. He obtained his PhD in April 2014, presenting a thesis on variable kinematic 1D, 2D, and 3D models for the analysis of aerospace structures. He also gained his BSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino in October 2007, presenting a thesis on advanced wing structures. He then obtained an MSc from the same university in July 2010, with a thesis on higher-order one-dimensional structural models applied to static, dynamic, and aeroelastic analysis. He was involved in many research programs supported by the European Space Agency and the European Union in cooperation with many European industrial and academic partners. From 2011, Dr. Zappino has worked as a teaching assistant at the Politecnico di Torino on the course of Aeroelasticity. In 2014, he was appointed as Adjunct Professor in Fundamentals of Strength of Materials at the Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
