Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Coraddu has been Assistant Professor in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde since October 2018. His relevant professional and academic experiences include working as Teaching Associate at the University of Strathclyde, Research Associate at the School of Marine Science and Technology at Newcastle University, Research Engineer as part of the DAMEN R&D department based in Singapore, and serving as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Genoa, where he was awarded a Laurea and a PhD in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.


Dr Coraddu’s research focuses on modelling, optimisation and analysis of ship power plants and propulsion systems for efficiency improvement and reduction of environmental footprint. His primary research involves taking advantage of on-board data availability in assessing vessel performance, energy optimisation, and real-time monitoring of the primary systems. Utilising the latest learning algorithms and theoretical results in machine learning, Dr Coraddu is developing data-driven approaches to investigate the behaviour of complex on-board systems and their mutual interaction.
