Riccardo Augello is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which is a researcher mobility programme funded by the European Commission.
Augello received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in February, 2021. His research project focused on the development of advanced mathematical theories based on nonlocal mechanics for the geometrical nonlinear analysis of composite structures. The research activities were carried out jointly with the City University of Hong Kong, where he spent a six-month research period. In July 2022 he was appointed Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Torino.
Augello joined Caltech in March 2023 as a part of his European research project ‘NOnlinear analysis for VIrTual design of composite deployAble Space booms and membranes’ (NOVITAS). The project aims to generate novel advances in the mathematical modelling of ultra-thin deployable and foldable composite structures.
