I graduated at the University of Pavia with the Laurea Magistrale programme in Civil Engineering. I carried out the master thesis at the University of Porto (FEUP) regarding the modeling of the out-of-plane behavior of a sacco granite masonry wall (typical Portuguese). Then, after a short period of work at the Eucentre foundation, I attended the master on “Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology” at the Rose school in Pavia (IUSS). I carried out the thesis during a stage at Arup Amsterdam. The topic were a method to prioritize the inspections on houses belonging to a large building stock based on their seismic vulnerability through visual screening, and related modelling assumptions.
