Short biography

Dr. Riccardo Pellegrini is a Research Scientist at CNR-INM, National Research Council of Italy-Institute of Marine Engineering. He achieved his master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering at the Roma Tre University in 2014. He achieved his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from the same university in 2017, with a thesis on the development of global multi-objective optimization algorithms and multi-fidelity adaptive metamodels for simulation-based design optimization. The Ph.D. was carried out under a scholarship from CNR-INM (formerly CNR-INSEAN). He has spent significant time abroad, visiting UK (as research fellow at Bath University); Germany (as intern at Friendship Systems in Potsdam); and the Iowa University (as visiting post-doc research fellow). His current research interests are in multi-fidelity metamodeling, multidisciplinary optimization, uncertainty quantification, and fluid-structure interaction.
