Dr. B. (Bianca) Giovanardi



Dr. Bianca Giovanardi is an assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Structures and Materials (ASM/LR) at TU Delft.

Her expertise lies in high-performance computational modeling of multi-physics coupled problems across diverse domains,
including geophysics, biomechanics, aerospace, and defense.
Prior to joining TU Delft in 2020, she served as a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Aeronautics and
Astronautics at MIT, where she applied high-performance computing to nonlinear solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, and
fluid-structure interaction. She earned her Ph.D. in Computational Mathematics from Politecnico di Milano in 2017.

Her research efforts have been sponsored by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the US Army
Research Laboratory, and the Delft Technology Fellowship. Dr. Giovanardi's achievements include awards such as the 2nd Best Presentation at the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (2022), the Delft Technology Fellowship (2020), Women in Aerospace
Engineering recognition (2019), Caltech Young Investigator Lecturer (2019), and the Roberto Rocca Doctoral Fellowship (2015).

Her current research interests include next-generation models for high-performance computational mechanics with applications to aerospace structures, soft matter and architected materials.
