Antonino Iannuzzo is a structural engineer. After receiving his master’s degree at the University of Naples Federico II, he completed his Ph.D. in 2017 with a dissertation on “A new rigid block model for masonry structures” written under the supervision of Professors Maurizio Angelillo and Antonio Gesualdo. Antonino's research during his Ph.D. work focused on models for the static, kinematic and dynamic analysis of masonry elements and structures modelled as continua composed of Normal Rigid No Tension material.
Since 2013, he has worked on masonry buildings, restoration projects and retrofitting of new reinforced concrete buildings. During the academic year 2017-18 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher on "large scale assessment of ordinary masonry buildings under seismic actions" at the P.LIN.I.V.S. Study Centre for Hydrogeological, Volcanic and Seismic Engineering, whose scientific coordinator is Prof. Giulio Zuccaro.
Antonino's research activities are mainly focused on the kinematics and statics of masonry structures and on the rocking behaviour of rigid blocks, and he joined the BRG in Nov 2018 as a post-doctoral researcher.
