Short biography

Andrea Serani was born in Italy in 1986. He received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy, in 2009, 2012, and 2016, respectively. In 2013, he joined the National Research Council-Marine Technology Research Institute, Rome, Italy, as a Ph.D. Fellow and in 2019 became a Research Scientist at the National Research Council-Institute of Marine Engineering, where is working within the multidisciplinary analysis and optimization research group. His research focuses on design-space dimensionality reduction, machine learning, and optimization algorithms for simulation-based design problems in computational fluid and structural dynamics. He has been a technical team member of several NATO Science and Technology Organisation, Applied Vehicle Technology, Research Task Groups on deterministic and stochastic design optimization, as well as on the assessment of the prediction capability of computational fluid dynamics for military vehicles operating in real conditions. He is Subject Expert and Teaching Assistant (“Cultore della Materia”) in Aircraft Design at Roma Tre University since 2017. He has been Visiting Ph.D. student in 2015 and Visiting PostDoc in 2018 at the University of Iowa. He has been co-principal investigator of ONR-funded NICOP (Naval International Cooperative Opportunities in Science and Technology Program) grants. He has been co-advisor of more than 10 students among the Ph.D., M.Sc., and B.Sc. programs of Roma Tre University and Sapienza University. He is the author of more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and international conference proceedings. He is serving as reviewer for more than 40 international journals, for which has revised more than 140 manuscripts. Dr. Serani is a member of “Ordine degli Ingegneri” (National Engineer’s Register) of Rome, Italy, since 2015.
