I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Design, Production, and Management (DPM), at the University of Twente. Within this role, I lead the research domain of Smart Materials and Structures (SMART) as part of the AMSPES research chair.
I earned my Ph.D. degree through a prestigious fellowship program at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy in 2017. My doctoral and postdoctoral research primarily focused on Advanced Manufacturing of Shape Memory Materials between 2014 and 2019. During those years, I developed various experimental and simulation approaches for laser welding and additive manufacturing processes.
Over the years, I've actively participated in several European and National projects, such as REDI, Smart Sandwich, reSHAPE, and Waste2Print. I've also organized a scientific webinar on the topic of Advanced Manufacturing of Smart Materials and Structures AM-SMART.
I am investigating the advanced manufacturing of smart materials and structures (SMART). In particular, I use additive manufacturing technologies for the design and development of both metallic and polymeric smart materials and complex multifunctional structures.
My research interests are toward the direction of the following topics;
- Advanced manufacturing
- 3D/4D printing
- Smart materials and structures
- Shape memory materials
