Personal profile

Personal Statement

Welcome to my university web page. I am a lecturer (assistant professor) at the Centre for Intelligent Infrastructure within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I am interested in the efficiency of computation carried out with imprecisely specified numbers. A number can be specified as an interval, a pair of moments, a probability distribution, an imprecisely specified distribution, and many more. There are numerous advantages that follow from being able to explicitly compute with imprecision. First, we can automatically propagate the uncertainty for model verification. Second, we can make rigorous inference with scarce empirical data for model calibration and validation. These methods are very useful to build trust in simulation for structural reliability and structural health monitoring. 

I obtained a PhD in risk and uncertainty in 2015 from the University of Liverpool’s Institute for Risk and Uncertainty. I hold a Bachelor and Master of Engineering both cum laude in civil and environmental engineering awarded by the University of Rome, Roma Tre. After the PhD, I was research associate and academic manager of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Risk and Uncertainty of the University of Liverpool for over two years. In 2018 I was appointed research associate for the EPSRC-UKRI Programme Grant on digital twins for improved dynamic design.

Currently I teach overdeterminate structures to third year students both Strathclyde and IJEP, and dynamics of multi-degree-of-freedom systems to fourth year GA students. The teaching and assessment material for the dynamics class was developed by Dr Douglas and me from scratch. Overall, I teach a total of 22.5 credits.
