Research interests

My role aims at developing design tools capable of capturing the structural behaviour of through-thickness pinned composite structures under static and dynamic loading conditions. 

I am also interested in the development of micromechanical numerical analysis capable to predict the initiation and propagation of the different failure mechanisms in composite materials. The understading of how such mechanisms evolve can lead to the development of more efficient damage control and/or prevention techniques, allowing for an even more efficient appplication of composites by industry with consequent reduction in weight and costs.
