Fabrizio Greco was born in Catanzaro (Italy) September 2, 1973. In 1997,he obtained his Civil Engineering Degree from the University of Calabria, Cosenza, Italy, 110/110 with honors, thesis: “Un’analisi dell’influenza dei modi di frattura sulla propagazione della delaminazione nelle piaster multistrato.” In 2002,he got his Ph.D. degree in dissertation: “Criteri di stabilità materiale in solidi con legame costitutivo incrementale” from the Department of Civil Engineering, the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy,. From November 1999 until December 2004, he served as an Assistant Professor of structural engineering at the University of Calabria, Italy. Since January 2005, he worked as an Associate Professor of structural engineering at the same University. He is the author/coauthor of 33 papers in international journals, 5 parts of books, 46 proceedings of international conferences, 27 proceedings in national conferences, and 14 internal research reports. His teaching activities include undergraduate courses of strength of materials, dynamics of structures, seismic dynamics of structures, and statics. His current research activities focus on damage phenomena in composite materials: plate and interface models for delamination, debonding in FRP-strengthened beams, numerical approaches to damage, interlaminar and intralaminar damage, and dynamic delamination, fracture mechanics: finite element analysis with discrete-crack and interface models, and stability, bifurcation, large deformations: material and structural instabilities in solids with incremental constitutive law, interactions between micro- and macroin stabilities in solids with heterogeneous microstructure in presence of damage and contact, and homogenization and multiscale methods: macroscopic properties of composite materials with evolving microstructural configuration due to contact and fracture, multiscale failure analysis of fiber-reinforced composite structure in presence of microscopic crack initiation and propagation.
