Gian Paolo Cimellaro is currently Associate Professor at the Politecnico di Torino. He has been recently Visiting Professor at the University of California Berkeley (2014-2016). He obtained his M.S. (2005) and Ph.D. (2008) from the University at Buffalo (SUNY) in USA. Graduated cum laude in Civil Engineering, University of Rome La Sapienza (2001). He is the Chair of the ASCE Committee on “Disaster Resilience of Structures, Infrastructures and Communities” in USA. In 2011, he has received the Fib Achievement Award for Young Engineers, sponsored by fib - the international federation for structural concrete. In 2015, he has received the Seed Grant Award from the Siebel Energy Institute of UC Berkeley. Prof. Cimellaro current research interests address earthquake engineering with emphasis to community resilience to natural disasters such as earthquakes. He has been awarded a grant of 1.3 M € by the European Research Council for the research project "IDEAL RESCUE: Integrated Design and control of sustainable communities During emergencies" ERC-2014-StG (2015-2019). This is the most prestigious prize assigned in Europe to researchers, performing high-risk and high-gain ground-breaking research.
Sebastiano Marasco is currently Ph.D. student at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy). He received his master degree in Civil Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino in 2014. His thesis focused on the signal processing of earthquake records and he has implemented a software called Opensignal for earthquake record processing and selection adopted in both practice and academic field. His expertise is in the advanced software programming, in the seismic design of reinforced concrete buildings and in the F.E.M. analysis. His research under the supervision of Professor Gian Paolo Cimellaro is focused on the assessment of resilience in a urban environment. This research is part of project IDEal reSCUE founded by the European Research Council. As a part of this research, he has collected the building’s data within a virtual city and developed an algorithm for estimating the capacity of each building under a seismic event.
