Biography

Gioacchino Cafiero holds the role of assistant professor with tenure, from 1 April 2021. GC's research activity is mainly focused on the field of flow control, using active and passive techniques. Recently, GC has focused on the implementation of artificial intelligence-based techniques for defining optimal control laws for reducing the drag of bluff bodies, such as commercial transport vehicles. The research activity also focuses on the study of the aerodynamic performance of unmanned vehicles operating in urban environments. GC has developed a wide range of knowledge in the field of canonical turbulent flow modeling, including the implications of newly found scaling on the properties of such flows (i.e. the entrainment speed in turbulent planar jets). GC has also contributed to the development and application of non-intrusive anemometric techniques for the measurement of turbulent flows such as tomographic particle image velocimetry.
