Prof. GUIDO MAGENES

Guido Magenes is Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at University  of Pavia. He took his Laurea degree at the Università  di Pavia (1986), his MSc in Structural Engineering in 1989 at the University of California San Diego and his PhD in 1992 at the Politecnico di Milano. In 1995, Dr. Magenes became Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering at the Università di Pavia, obtaining the position of Associate Professor in the year of 2000. He has over 25 years research experience in the area of seismic analysis, design and assessment of structures, including extensive experimental activity. He has authored or co-authored over 160 scientific papers in the field of structural engineering, with emphasis on masonry and reinforced concrete structures subjected to seismic and nonseismic loading.
