DR Gennaro Senatore

Dr. Eng.  MRes  MSc  MEng (Hons)


Bio:
I am a scientist and engineer specialised in computational structural mechanics and modern computer-aided design which includes algorithmic modelling, generative design and form-finding. I am currently a postdoctoral scientist at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. I previously worked as a postdoctoral scientist at University College London and as the Head of computational design & research at London based practice Expedition Engineering.

I hold an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) from University College London. Previously, I was awarded with distinction an MSc in Computing and Design from University of East London School of Architecture, Computing and Civil Engineering in 2009 and an MSc in Emergent Technologies from The Architectural Association (London) in 2008. I graduated in mechanical engineering MEng (Hons) at Federico II University (Naples, Italy) in 2006.  

Expertise:
Computational Design | Structural Mechanics & Optimisation
Control Systems Engineering | Programming (Java, C#, C++)  

My Team:

Arka Reksowardojo - Arka is looking into structural adaptation though large shape changes.  

Jan Brutting - Jan is working on new design and optimisation methods to ‘reuse’ the energy/carbon embodied into structures for multiple service lives (e.g. reuse dismantled components to build new structures).  

Qinyu Wang - Qinyu is investigating the use of variable stiffness joints in adaptive structures.  

Open Position:

Post-doc at Applied Computing and Research Laboratory (EPFL)
