About me:

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Aerospace Structures and Materials at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), working on design, analysis and optimization of lightweight structures. Together with my research group, I am currently focusing on the development of reduced-order methods to quantitatively assess crashworthiness in the preliminary design of unconventional aircraft (unconventional configurations and unconventional fuels); and on exploiting the maximum strength of available materials in designs that allow post-buckling.
