Current work

Currently I am working on the following topics:

• Development of analytical and numerical tools for the seismic assessment of the out-of-plane response of unreinforced masonry walls
• Experimental work on in-plane stone masonry walls
• Refined model simulation on stone masonry under shear-compression
