Patrizia Trovalusci graduated from the Sapienza University of Rome,in 1987. He received his Ph.D. degree from the same university in 1992. He is currently an Associate Professor of solids and structural mechanics. He was Author or coauthor of about 120 papers on applied solids and structural mechanics, and in international and national journals, books, reports, and conference proceedings. He acted as a project leader and participant in various financed research projects. He also acted as a referee of various international journals and books on solids and structural mechanics and structural architecture as well as a Guest Editor of three special issues of the International Journal of Multiscale Computational Engineering. He acted as Principal Coordinator of various international symposia (Multiscale Mechanical Modeling of Complex Materials and Engineering Applications, MCM1-THERMEC06, Vancouver, 2006; MCM2-THERMEC09, Berlin, 2009; Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Methodologies for Complex Materials, M2CM2-ECCM2010, Paris, 2010; On the Tectonics in Architecture, between Aesthetic and Ethic, TAAE-ICSA2010, Guimarães-Portugal) and Cocoordinator of advanced courses (Masonry Constructions. Modeling, Seismic Safety and Conservation of Ordinary and Monumental Building, Rome, 2009). He has the following memberships: International Scientific Committee (2006), International Advisory Committee (2009) and International Executive Committee (2011) of the International Conference on Processing and Manufacturing of Advanced Materials (THERMEC); International Scientific Committee 2nd International Conference on Structures and Architecture (ICSA2013). He is also a Member of the following associations: AIMETA, Italian Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics; EUROMECH, European Society of Mechanics; GIMC, Italian Group of Computational Mechanics; ECCOMAS. His areas of interest are continuum mechanics, nonstandard continua, mechanics of masonry materials and structures, mechanics of composite materials, and multiscale constitutive models.
