Assistant Professor of Solid and Structural Mechanics

Diego Misseroni is an Assistant Professor of Solid and Structural Mechanics at the University of Trento, Italy. He earned his PhD in 'Engineering of Civil and Mechanical Structural Systems' from the University of Trento in 2013. He was Marie Curie experienced researcher at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Liverpool, UK, in 2014. In 2017, he was awarded the 'AIMETA Junior Prize' in Solid and Structural Mechanics(by the Italian Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics). His research interests are in the field of the Mechanics of Solids and Structures and include fracture mechanics; buckling and instabilities of structures undergoing large deformations; contact mechanics; wave propagation and metamaterials; elasto-plastic modelling and mechanical characterisation of traditional and advanced ceramics.
