Biography

Dr Marco Messina has started his new position as a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering Design and he is a member of LOOM since September 2015. Marco studied for his bachelor and master course in the Management Engineering course at the Bologna University in Italy, completed in 2005. In 2007 worked as a research assistant at the University of Technology of Sydney in Australia for 2 years and at the end of 2009 started a PhD course in a motorsport project in Cranfield University (UK). Marco also worked a year in the industry after completion of his PhD as a consultant engineer in the automotive sector. Research interests include design of nanotech devices, MEMS design and optimization, wireless sensors networks, virtual engineering, structural NVH/crash analysis of vehicles, development of new composite materials used in lightweight structures and passive/active safety technologies in the automotive industry.
