Filippo Ubertini is an Associate Professor of Structural Design at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of University of Perugia where he currently teaches Theory and Design of Bridges. He graduated cum laude in Civil Engineering at University of Perugia in 2005. He received his PhD in Civil Engineering from University of Pavia in 2009. He was visiting scholar at Columbia University in 2008. He received full marks at the SMI International School of Mathematics in 2006 and was winner of 3 Marie Curie fellowships in the period 2006-2008. He has been advisor of several master theses in Civil Engineering, invited lecturer in national and international institutions and professional associations. He is author of more than 60 papers among which 28 in international journals. He won the 2010 Award of the Italian Association of Wind Engineering for the best journal paper in the field of wind engineering authored by a young researcher in the last two years. He was also winner of a best paper award in the EVACES 2011 International Conference and was awarded for “cultural merits” by the Professionals Engineers Board of Perugia in 2011. He is a member of the Board of Teachers of the International Doctoral Course in “Processes, Materials and Constructions in Civil and Environmental Engineering and for The Protection of the Historic-Monumental Heritage”, established between the University of Florence and the Technische Universität “Carolo Wilhelmina” of Braunschweig (Germany). He is a member of the editorial boards of: Mathematical Problems in Engineering, Journal of Smart Cities, International Journal of Civil and Structural Engineering, Journal of Vibration and Wave Propagation. His research topics cover the two major fields of structural health monitoring and structural control, with emphasis on smart materials and applications to cultural heritage structures and bridges. He is reviewer for many international journals among which: Eng Struct, Struct Control Hlth, Smart Struct Syst, J Eng Mech-ASCE, J Wind Eng Ind Aerod, J Vib Control, Wind Struct, Adv Eng Softw, Int J Fatigue, Fatigue Fract Eng M, Adv Struct Eng,Comput Aided Civ Infr Eng, Int J Struct Stab Dyn, J Vib Acous, Materials.
