Davide Lo Presti
Research Project Coordinator, Academic, and Indipendent consultant in Palermo, Italy
I define my area of research as "Sustainable and Smart development of Transport Infrastructure". Indeed, I believe that engineering has no better choice that investing in its sustainable development embracing innovation and new technologies to support healthy society and respecting the environment. On this basis my vision on research needs is built upon links with industry to clearly understand research questions, exploring new and multi-disciplinary technologies and techniques and undertaking collaborative research to conceive the transport infrastructures of the future SMARTI: "Sustainable Multi-functional Automated Resilient Transport Infrastructures" (http://smartietn.eu)
I am an international research projects coordinator, an Assistant Professor at Dipartimento di Ingegneria at the University of Palermo (IT), a Visiting Academic at NTEC of the University of Nottingham (UK), and an independent consultant.
