PhD and Research fellow at Polytechnic University of Bari, DICATECh
I held the title of Doctor Europeus at Polytechnic University of Bari, DICATECh, under the supervision of Prof. Fabio Fatiguso, Prof. Guido Raffaele Dell’Osso and Prof. Lamine Mahdjoubi from University of West England (Bristol, UK), with the thesis “The implementation of automatic diagnostics and monitoring towards Diagnosis-Aided Historic Building Information Modelling and Management”.
Afterwards, I started the investigation in the project VERBUM – Virtual Enhanced Reality for Building Modelling, as researcher in BReD srl, the spin-off of Polytechnic University of Bari, with the aim to develop a web-based Virtual Environment to support all the actors involved in the process of refurbishment and restoration. I was lecturer of some courses about the BIM approach: “Building Information Modeling - Progettazione Integrata Multidisciplinare Bim Based” A.A 2018/2019 at Polytechnic University of Bari; “BIM architecture” in IdeaAcademy, and “Dynamo” for an Italian engineering and architect society.
Then, I started the research fellowship in the PRIN 2017 project named Bes2ecure, aimed at structuring virtual training with extensive models (GIS and BIM) and fast models (based on Virtual Tours), in order to enhance knowledge and awareness about Built Environment risks and suggest safe behaviours, directed to expert and non-expert users towards Sudden Onset and Slow Onset Disasters (SUOD and SLOD).
I collaborated in the projects of steel structures, windows and metallic doors for residential buildings and public infrastructures, such as rail stations, for renovation and consolidation. I spent almost one year as trainee in the Technical Management office of Aeroporti di Puglia Spa, in the sector of public procurement, BIM-based bid, infrastructure monitoring and maintenance and safety management according to EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) regulations.
Why the summer school is important for you.
I decided to attend the Summer School to contaminate, in a very positive way, previous personal knowledge and share observations, comments, suggestions with academics and professionals involved in this experience, with the aim to structure a holistic approach, boosted by digital technologies, to prepare resilient communities against disasters.
