Elena Pierro - Biography

Elena Pierro was born in Trento (Italy) on November 30, 1981. She gained her Mechanical Engineering Degree summa cum laude on November 2005, at Politecnico di Bari, with a final dissertation entitled "Study and dynamic characterization of a microelectromechanical system". In the year 2006 she had the Qualification as a Professional Engineer of the Italian Association of Engineers. Since June 2006 to June 2009 she attended the PhD course in Mechanical Design and Biomechanics at the Department of Mechanical and Management Engineering (DIMeG) of Politecnico di Bari. The topic of the research was "Noise and Mechanical Vibrations in the Design Process of Machines". During the PhD course, she spent 6 month abroad (September 2008 – March 2009), at LMS International HQ, Leuven (Measurement and Systems - Engineering Innovation of Software and Hardware Systems for Noise and Vibration applications, Belgium), where she carried out the following research projects: (i) Modal testing on a fuselage panel made of composite material: comparison of the effects of different measure techniques on the data quality (UNVICO-2 PROJECT) and (ii) Vibro-acoustic modal analysis of the helicopter EUROCOPTER EC-135, (FRIENDCOPTER Project). Since October 2008 to May 2010, she worked as employed at IVECO (FIAT) in Turin (Italy), where her main activities were structural calculations, NVH and durability analyses in light commercial vehicles (Innovation & Advanced Development - Computations & Statistics – LCV). Since June 2010 she is part of the scientific staff at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Bari. Her main interests are AFM dynamics, structural vibrations and contact mechanics.
