Luca Lanzoni is Associate Professor of Solid and Structural Mechanics in the DIEF - Department of Engineering “Enzo Ferrari” at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE, Italy) and Head of the “CRICT”, the Inter-departmental Research and Innovation Centre on Construction and Environmental Services. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees, cum laude, in Civil Engineering from the University of Ferrara, a Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. He is member of the GNFM-INdAM (from 2010) and member of the board of the PhD School at UNIMORE. He participated as Associated Investigator and/or Coordinator of research units in the framework of several national research projects funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR), by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (FAR2020 “Mission Oriented”) and a project funded by GNFM-INdAM (progetto Giovani 2015). His research interests include dynamic response of deformable walls to contain poro-visco-elastic soils, contact problems between films/coatings/beams/plates resting on elastic substrates, modeling of FRCs, mechanical models for hyperelastic damaged materials in the framework of finite elasticity and homogenization of physical properties of advanced composite materials.
