Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a materials engineer specialized in fibre reinforced composites. The PhD project I'm conducting is about combining full field imaging techniques for subsurface composite structure defects assessment. The research fields of interest are:

  • Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA).
  • Experimental mechanics of composite materials.
  • Fibre reinforced laminates defects identification.
  • NDE techniques for assessing damage.
