Research

Giorgia‚Äôs research aims at increasing urban resilience through the evaluation of buildings and infrastructure vulnerability. By integrating remote sensing data, experimental testing and computational modelling, she analyses the response of existing structures to urbanisation, earthquakes and climate change effects.

Her research interests include remote sensing and computational modelling, climate change resilience, risk and damage assessment, heritage protection, seismic vulnerability and retrofitting, tunnelling and underground excavations, and settlement-induced structural damage.
