Areas of expertise: 

Primary Research Theme : Vibrations, Acoustics, and Fluid-Structure Interaction
Research Group/Lab : Vibrations and Hydrodynamics

My main research interest is nonlinear vibrations and stability of shells with and without fluid-structure interaction. I study vibrations of shells and plates made of traditional, composite, functionally graded materials and biological tissues. I have a wide research approach, since I use numerical and analytical tools, as well as laboratory experiments with the most advanced instrumentation, including laser Doppler vibrometers, LMS modal analysis system and large water tunnels. Particular attention is developed in (i) obtaining very accurate reduced-order models that can be fully studied by using bifurcation analysis, and (ii) investigating nonlinear damping. The applications of my research are in very different fields: aeronautics, aerospace, vascular mechanics, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, energy generation.
