Alberto Salvadori

The Mechanobiology Research Center, Università di Brescia

Alberto Salvadori received his M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Brescia in 1995 and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Science from Politecnico di Milano, in 2000. At present, he is Associate Professor at the University of Brescia. He has been Research Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame, USA from Jan. 2015 to June 2017. He was also the recipient of a Marie-Curie IEF fellowship, that he spent at the Technical University of Eindhoven (The Netherlands). He founded The Mechanobiology Research Center, UNIBS serving as vice-director, as well as the Multiscale Mechanics and Multiphysics of Materials Lab. He is currently Director of the CeSiA (Centro di Studio e Ricerca di Sismologia applicata e dinamica strutturale – Applied Seismology and Structural Dynamics Research Center ) at the University of Brescia.  
Professor Salvadori’s research is focused on the multiscale and multiphysics of continua. He is particularly interested in Mechanobiology and Li-ion batteries modeling. His expertise concern (computational) homogenization, diffusion and migration of species in solids and in the induced fracturing processes.
