PhD program:: XXXVII

supervisor: Prof. Giuseppe Lanzo

Research: Study of the cyclic behavior of natural and reconstituted soils at medium and high deformations using laboratory tests: experimental aspects and effects on the seismic risk mitigation.

PhD student in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering at University of Rome "La Sapienza" (XXXVII cycle).

Education and training:
2019: Master Degree in Civil Engineering, at University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, with a grade of 110/110 with honors. Thesis title: “Mechanical analysis according to the steady state theory of a pyroclastic soil under monotonic and cyclic loads”.
Thesis main objectives: definition of the seismic behavior of a pyroclastic deposit (Rangiriri, New Zealand) through monotone and cyclic laboratory tests in a triaxial cell and definition of cyclic resistance curves.
2019: Post graduate experimental research activity at University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli concerning the definition of liquefaction potential of pyroclastic soils through the execution of an experimental program with triaxial stress controlled path tests, in collaboration with the University of Auckland (New Zealand).

Scientific interests:
The research interests concern the study of the dynamic behavior of foundation soils and the evaluation of their liquefaction potential for the definition of possible seismic risk interventions.
