RESEARCH INTERESTS


My research activities concern the development and the application of control theory methods to mechanical systems and smart composite structures. Ongoing activities are on the development structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and active control (AC) representing the best-known form of structural smartness. These two research topics involve multidisciplinary fields ranging from material, structure, signal processing, control, data mining, fatigue life analysis and more.
