Biography

● Pietro Cornetti was born in Parma on the 31st of December 1970.

● He got the Scientific High School Degree in 1989 with the highest score.

● He received the combined BS-MS Degree with honours in Civil Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino in 1995. Thesis title: “Operatori statici e cinematici per lastre a doppia curvature” (shells: static and kinematic operators); Supervisor: Prof. Alberto Carpinteri.

● He received the PhD in Structural Engineering in 1999 at the Politecnico di Torino. Thesis title: “Frattali e Calcolo Frazionario nella Meccanica dei Solidi Danneggiati” (Fractal and Fractional Calculus in Damage Mechanics); Supervisor: Prof. Alberto Carpinteri.

● Since 1999 up to 2003 he got a post-doctoral position at the Politecnico di Torino for the project: “Scale effects on the mechanical behaviour of disordered materials".

● In 2000 he was a Visiting Fellow at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki within the Training and Mobility of Researchers Project of the European Community on “Spatio-temporal instabilities in deformation and fracture: mechanics, materials science and nonlinear physics aspects”.

● Since 2003 to 2014 Dr. Pietro Cornetti worked at the Politecnico di Torino as Assistant Professor of Structural Mechanics. Since 2014 he is working as Associate Professor.

● His research interests include: solid and fracture mechanics, fractals and fractional calculus, size effects in concrete and grained materials, soil consolidation and avalanche triggering, structural retrofitting. He is a member of the Italian Group of Fracture (IGF), of the Italian Association of Applied and Theoretical Mechanics (AIMETA) and of the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS).

● His teaching activity dates back to 1995. Since the academic year 2003/04 he has been tenure teacher of the course of Solid Mechanics for Mathematical Engineers and since 2006/07 of the course of Strength of Materials for Civil Engineers.
