Research interests

‌Biography

I am lecturer in System Dynamics and I am part of the SPE group. I graduated from the University of Naples in Aerospace Engineering in 2006. After my degree I worked for two years in acoustics and noise reduction for Ansaldo Breda (high speed train V250) and Piaggio Aeronautica (P180 Avanti). During this period I nurtured my passion for research and I finally decided to continue my studies by joining the University of Bristol for a PhD. My PhD dissertation was titled "Increasing the bandwidth of vibration based Energy harvesters". During these years I developed an interest for nonlinear dynamics. After working for the university of Bristol on three projects on nonlinear dynamics, I was appointed as a lecturer in System Dynamics in January 2015. 

Interests 

My main research interests include system dynamics, with particular attention to nonlinear and structural dynamics, mathematics/numerical modeling and energy harvesting. 

System dynamics

My research in system dynamics mainly focuses on nonlinear dynamics and structural dynamics. In particular I am interested in explaining the complex behavior exhibited by nonlinear structures: nonlinear modes, modal interaction, harmonic and quasi periodic responses, bifurcations. Both simulation and identification of nonlinear systems are part of my research activities. My invesitgation of nonlinear phenonema involve both theoretical studies but also numerical modelling, validation and experimental testing. 

Modeling and simulation 

My research uses many mathematical and numerical tools to investigate the dynamics of systems. When the system is nonlinear this tools become a key component to understand and analyze the response of the system to external inputs. For this reason I research and develop both analytical and numerical method able to support my investigations. 

Energy harvesting

This is a topic I approached during my PhD and I find it very fascinating. How to supply the future generations with energy is an open question to which no definite answer exists yet. For this reason I believe that researching methods to harvest and store energy from any available source is one of the important challenges for building our future.
