In general, my research aims to develop high-performance wood-based systems and structures, as well as related performance-based optimum design procedures for engineers to provide them with cost-effective safer buildings, also under extreme events. Specifically, my research vision focuses on integrating new engineered wood products, structural elements, and prefabricated hybrid composite systems into a coherent framework of innovative methods of design and construction for the next generation of buildings and sustainable urban development.
Naturally-inspired industrialized construction systems
