Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Corradi is actually an Associate Professor at the University of Northumbria, UK. He has 20 years experience including eight years as an aggregate professor at the University of Perugia, Italy. From 1998 to 2013  Dr  Corradi was Coordinator and Lecturer of the course “Mechanics of Structures” and “Experimental analysis of existing structures”. With an internationally recognised research profile in the field of structural analysis and retrofitting of historic constructions, he has been invited as a guest speaker at numerous research seminars in universities across Europe and USA. In addition, he sit on the editorial board of 4 scientific engineering journals. Dr Corradi is an Editor of Journal of Construction and Building Materials, edited by Elsevier. The research component focuses on the use of new advanced materials for upgrading of existing masonry and wood historic constructions. He is also a chartered member of the Institution of Structural Engineers (IstructE) and a fellow of the High Education Academy (HEA). He is also an honorary partner of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. He is author of 254 articles and 4 books.
