Marco Lepidi


CAREER. Marco received a five-year degree in Civil Engineering cum laude at the University of L’Aquila (Italy, 2002), a PhD in Structural Engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (Italy, 2006). From 2012 he holds a permanent position of Assistant Professor for the SDS ICAR/08 at the University of Genoa (Italy), where he presently joins the DICCA - Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering.

RESEARCH. Marco is continuously involved in research activities since 2002. His main research interests focus on theoretical and applied topics in the field of Structural Mechanics, including: - linear and nonlinear dynamics of flexible structures - mechanics of periodic materials - eigensolution sensitivity of resonant systems - parametric identification of dynamic systems - passive, active and semi-active control of vibrations - structural health monitoring - aerodynamic stability - seismic engineering.

Marco authored more than 100 scientific publications, including articles published in international and Italian journals, book chapters, papers published in proceedings of international and national conferences. This scientific production is indexed in Scopus, ISI Web of Science, Google Scholar. The current research activities can be followed at ResearchGate, or Mendeley.

From october 2014, Marco is Assistant Editor of the scientific journal MECCANICA (Springer). From June 2015 Marco is Board Member (for the Engineering field) of the journal SpringerPlus (Springer). Marco is affiliated with research centres and groups operating in the fields of structural mechanics, wind engineering, information and communication technology - Centers of excellence DEWS - Design Methodologies for Embedded controllers, Wireless interconnect and System-on-chip (University of L’Aquila) - Research Group WinDyn - Wind Engineering and Structural Dynamics Research Group (University of Genoa) and is member of italian and international scientific associations and societies - EACS - European Association for the Control of Structures - EuroMech - European Mechanics Society - AIMeTA - Associazione Italiana di Meccanica Teorica e Applicata - GADeS - Gruppo Aimeta di Dinamica e Stabilità

Marco was also repeatedly involved in research activities in european research centres, as Research Fellow at the Earthquake Engineering Research Centre (University of Bristol, England 2003), and as Visiting PhD at the Structural Engineering Research Laboratory (EMPA Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Testing and Research, Zurich, Switzerland 2005). Marco also contributed to several activities of experimental research in many sites, on real-scale strategic and monumental structures, and in important national and foreign laboratories, on light models.

Marco participated in the Research Unit of the University of L’Aquila for several research projects in the field of structural mechanics, including PRIN-MIUR 2004/05, 2005/06, 2006/07, 2010/2011, DPC-RELUIS 2005/08, 2010/13, MIVIS 2007-11.

Marco was Post-doctoral Researcher at the DISAT - Department of Structural, Water and Soil Engineering (currently DICEAA), and the CERFIS - Training and Research Earthquake Engineering Centre of the University of L’Aquila (2012). In this period he held three Research Grants for a two-year project (DISAT 2005/06 and 2006/07), a two-year project (Disat 2007/08, 2008/09 and 2009/10), and a one-year project (CERFIS 2012/13).

TEACHING. From 2012 Marco is responsible of the courses on Structural Mechanics and Solids Mechanics and is member of the CCdS of Naval Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering at the Politechnic School of the University of Genoa (see the Aulaweb page of the courses). From 2005 to 2011 he was Teaching Assistant for the SDS ICAR/08 at the Engineering Faculty of the University of L’Aquila.
