Gianrocco Mucedero got his Master of Science degree (magna cum laude) in Civil Engineering in 2017 at the University of Pavia (Italy), with a specialization in structural design. The research topic of the MSc thesis, entitled “Progressive collapse: analysis and comparison of different types of buildings”, was the progressive collapse of buildings under low probability-high consequence events. After the conclusion of his MSc degree, he immediately started to work on the study of induced seismicity effects in buildings in Groningen, at Arup in Amsterdam, addressing mainly the seismic risk assessment of Dutch unreinforced masonry buildings and retrofit systems. He then enrolled, in September 2018, in the PhD programme in “Understanding and Managing Extremes”, curriculum Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (ROSE), at IUSS in Pavia (Italy). Since 2015 he is also Tutor Assistant of Structural Engineering and Mechanics for Civil Engineering MSc degree at the University of Pavia.
