Rossana Dimitri is an Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering, Department of Innovation Engineering, University of Salento, Lecce, Italy. She received from the University of Salento, a M. Sc. degree in “Materials Engineering” in 2004, a Ph.D. degree in “Materials and Structural Engineering” in 2009, and a Ph.D. degree in “Industrial and Mechanical Engineering” in 2013. In 2005, she received from the University of Salento the “Best M. Sc. Thesis Price 2003-2004” in memory of Eng. Gabriele De Angelis; in 2013 she was awarded by the Italian Group for Computational Mechanics (GIMC) for the italian selection of the 2013 ECCOMAS PhD Award. Her current interests include Structural Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Damage and Fracture Mechanics, Contact Mechanics, Isogeometric Analysis, High performances Finite Elements, consulting in applied technologies and technology transfer. During 2010 and 2011 she received a research fellowship by ENEA Research Centre of Brindisi (UTTMATB-COMP) for the development and the characterization of some thermoplastic composites for thermal solar panels and adhesively bonded turbine blades under severe environmental conditions. During 2011 and 2012 she was a visiting scientist with a fellowship at the Institut für Kontinuumsmechanik Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover to study interfacial problems with isogeometric approaches. From 2013 to 2016 she was a researcher at the University of Salento, within the ERC starting research grant “INTERFACES” on “Computational mechanical modelling of structural interfaces based on isogeometric approaches”. From few months, she is collaborating with the University of Bologna and the Texas A&M University for a comparative assessment of some advanced numerical collocation methods with lower computational cost for fracturing problems and structural modelling of composite plates and shells, made by isotropic, orthotropic and anisotropic materials. She also collaborates as reviewer with different prestigious international journals in the structural mechanics field.
