Dr. Marco Alfano
Marco Alfano is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at University of Waterloo. Before his appointment he served as an Assistant Professor (Ricercatore) at Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Calabria (UNICAL), Italy, from 2012 to 2019. His research covers the mechanics of solids and layered structures, such as composite materials and adhesive bonded joints. The interplay between manufacturing and structural performance is a highlight of Marco’s recent research work, which enjoys an even balance between analytical, computational and experimental methods in fracture mechanics. Marco is an Editorial Board Member of the International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives (Elsevier) and the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology (Taylor and Francis).
