Luca Salvatori is assistant professor of Rehabilitation of Structures by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Florence. He is consultant for structural engineering and computational-software development and is the designer of the computer-code SMARTmasonry. His scientific interest focuses on the development and implementation of computational models. He developed numerical schemes for bridge aerodynamics, dynamics of quasicrystals, concrete cracking, liquid-solid phase-transitions, optimization of shell structures, multiscale models, masonry structures, seismic analysis, cold-formed steel, computational geometry and topology, mesh generation.

He currently teaches a course in "Mechanics of Solids" at Syracuse University Florence (spring semester only).
