The aspect that most attracted me to WPI is the possibility of combining teaching and research activities at very high levels. I enjoy working with students and sharing them the passion I have for aeronautics. I find it really rewarding.

For my research, I am mostly interested in structural dynamics and vibrations, with particular emphasis to response and model identification. I am also interested in understanding how the vibration characteristics of innovative structural configurations could affect and control the flow around an airfoil.

Research Interests

  • Response and model identification
  • Structural vibrations
  • Structural Health Monitoring
  • Innovative structural configurations for aerospace applications
