School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences
I am a civil engineering with a specialization in hydraulics. I completed my PhD on the optimization of water distribution systems at the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2009. I moved to the University of Adelaide in 2010.
My research interests involve the optimisation of the design and operation of water distribution systems using single-objective and multi-objective genetic algorithms.
My teaching experience includes the course coordination and lecturing of Water Engineering IIA, Water Engineering and Design IIIS2, Environmental Engineering and Design IVA and Environmental Modelling and Management.
