2011: Confirmation in the role of Researcher at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Bologna.
Since 2013: Scientific coordinator of the Research contract between the Unione Intercomunale Reno-Galliera (joining of eight Municipalities of the Province of Bologna) and the Department DICAM for the evaluation of the seismic calculation reports relevant to new and/or existing buildings: seismic authorisations and project deposits.
Since 2013: Member of the Evaluation Board (Agricultural Field MO-RE) to support the Officer in Charge of distributing the contributions to the agricultural activities in the Modena and Reggio Emilia provinces, after the seismic events of 20 and 29 may 2012. (Regional Decree n. 5 del 30/01/2013 of the Head of Emilia Romagna Region).
2013: National Scientific Qualification for Associate Professors in the 08/B3 division "Tecnica delle Costruzioni".
2014: Associate Professor since 15/09/2014, Department DICAM, "Tecnica delle Costruzioni", University of Bologna.
Since March 2017: Member of the Scientific Committee of the interdisciplinary Ph.D. Course in "Structural and Environmental Health Monitoring and Management - SEHM2" at the University of Bologna.
2018: Member of the Proposing Team of the research "SEismic Response of Actual steel SILOS (SERA-SILOS)", European Project SERA Transnational Access use of shaking tables (https://sera-ta.eucentre.it/index.php/sera-ta-project-18/). The research aims at studying the seismic behavior of actual flat-bottom grain silos made up of corrugated sheet walls and vertical stiffeners. The experimental shaking table tests will be performed at the EUCENTRE in Pavia.
2018: Member of the Proposing Team of the research "SEeismic BEhavior of Scaled MOdels of groin VAults made by 3D printers (SEBESMOVA3D)", European Project SERA Transnational Access use of shaking tables (https://sera-ta.eucentre.it/index.php/sera-ta-project-22/). The research aims at studying the seismic behavior of groin vaults made up of 3D-printed plastic bricks filled with mortar. The experimental shaking table tests will be performed at the EQUALS Laboratory in Bristol (UK).
2018: National Scientific Qualification for Full Professors in the 08/B3 division "Tecnica delle Costruzioni".
