Curriculum

Laurea degree in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) on 2003 from the University of Ferrara. Ph.D in Mechanics of Machines on 2007 at the same University. Assistant professor at the University of Ferrara from 2010 to 2017. Associate Professor at the University of Ferrara from 2018. His scientific activity is mainly in the field of Noise and Vibrations of Machines, with particular reference to elastodynamic models, condition monitoring, diagnostics and experimental vibration measurements. Tutor of 5 PhD students, supervisor of more than 90 theses of students belonging to the Mechanical Engineering Degree. In 2005 and 2007 he was guest at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven addressing researches on novel approaches for simplified FE model and vibro-acoustic experimental analyses in helicopters. Member of the Scientific committed of international conferences. Reviewer for the most important journals and conferences in the field of Mechanics of Machines and Vibration (about 20 revisions each year). Person in charge of 5 national and international peer review projects in the last 10 years. Person in charge of about 40 research projects with private companies in the last 5 years. Invited lectures in 7 workshops and conferences in the last 10 years. Author and co-author of 90 papers published in International Conference Proceedings, National and International Journals. Member of the Editorial Board of 5 International Journals.

 

Main research activities:

  • Mechanical system modelling for the identification of noise and vibration sources in order to improve the global dynamic behaviour of the system.
  • Condition monitoring, diagnostics and quality control based on vibration and acoustical analyses.
  • Noise source localization by means of advanced transfer path analysis and acoustic holography.
  • Vibro-acoustic optimization of mechanical structures
