18/05/2005-06/09/2020. Researcher in Manufacturing Processes and Sustainable Manufacturing. Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna, Faculty of Engineering.

PhD achieved in Engineering of Materials in 2004 with a thesis about modeling the process of laser cutting and welding, Faculty of Engineering, University of Firenze.

MSc achieved in Mechanical Engineering in 1998 with a thesis about prediction of mechanical properties of castings by means of artificial neural networks. MSc thesis was granted by italian AMME (Associazione Meridionale di Meccanica) and presented at the International Conference "Advancing with Composites 2000", 9-11 May, Milan, Italy.


PUBLICATIONS

More than 120 publications (International Journals, International Conferences, National Conferences, National Journals), of which beyond 60 in International Journals.

Most relevant international publications have been realized in the scientific field of manufacturing processes related to laser material processing and particularly cutting and welding. Laser cutting process has been investigated experimentally and by means of modeling, simulation and optimization. The "Prediction of molten pool geometry in laser cutting" was quoted several times. Laser hybrid welding (a Laser source was used together a traditional Gas Metal Arc torch) has been studied mainly experimentally and optimized by means of statistical methods. Relative position of the two energy sources and the effect of assistant gas mixes have been investigated.

PRIN TILAS research activity was documented in the Proceedings of the most important international conferences about metal foams (Metfoam 2007, Montreal, Canada and Metfoam 2009, Bratislava, Slovakia)


RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

Research topics are based on experimental activity, modeling, simulation and optimization of laser material processes (mainly cutting, welding and hybrid welding) and foundry processes.
