Dr Lorenzo Macorini is a Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at Imperial College London, where he is involved in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. After gaining his PhD in Structural Engineering at the University of Trieste (Italy) in 2003, he has been involved in scientific projects funded by both public organisations and private industries. The outcomes are summarised in 90 scientific papers, published in leading international journals and conference proceedings. He has also worked as a consultant for public and private companies. His main activity was to provide expertise for more complex design, particularly when numerical and experimental evaluations of existing and new structures were required. From 2008 to 2010, he has held a Marie Curie Intra-European Research Fellowship at Imperial College London, working on numerical modelling of masonry structures, research activity that he is currently carrying out in the Computational Structural Mechanics Group.
