My group focuses on the application of probabilistic methods to civil engineering problems. We employ probabilistic methods to quantify the lack of knowledge in the formulation of the problem at hand. We are interested in the natural and anthropogenic hazards and their socio-economic impact. We follow three main lines of research distinguished by the type of hazard: risk analysis for geohazards, rainfall-induced phenomena, and anthropogenic hazards. We are particularly interested in modelling the complex interactions between the hazards, and their socio-economic impacts and consequences.

We are particularly keen about maximizing the impact of our research by reaching out to the end-users and societal stakeholders with the aim of rendering a safer, more resilient, and sustainable living environment.

I have joined the Department of Structural Engineering at University of Naples in November 2006. I have completed my Ph.D. in Structural Engineering, in March 2003 at Stanford University. My dissertation is entitled Direct Probabilistic Seismic Analysis: Implementing Non-linear Dynamic Assessments, under the supervision of the late Professor C. Allin Cornell.
