Dr. A. (Alessandro) Cabboi



In 2020, Alessandro Cabboi took up the role of Assistant Professor in Interface Mechanics in the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at TU Delft. His academic path started at the University of Cagliari (Italy) where he obtained his MSc in Construction Engineering in 2010 and his PhD in Structural Engineering in 2014. The PhD thesis work was focused on dynamic identification and damage detection. After his PhD, he has been appointed as Post-Doctoral researcher in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cambridge (2014-2016), Imperial College London (2016) and the University of Sheffield (2017). In 2017, Alessandro moved back to Civil Engineering at TU Delft where he carried out post-doctoral research for further 3 years. 


His main research interests and expertise include: 

  • Experimental dynamics (laboratory and field tests);
  • Interface mechanics, covering tribology and contact mechanics;
  • Dissipation mechanisms in interfaces;
  • Dynamic inverse problems, system identification and model updating;
  • Nonlinear mechanics.
