Edoardo Patelli is a Lecturer at the Centre for Engineering Sustainability, School of Engineering, University of Liverpool, UK, and a member of the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty. He obtained his PhD in Radiation Science and Technologies at the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy. Later, he was a post-doctoral fellow and group leader at the Institute of Engineering Mechanics at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, under the guidance of the late Professor G. I. Schuëller. His research has been supported by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF) and the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR). Dr. Patelli’s current research activities deal with issues at the interface between theoretical research, application oriented developments and numerical implementations. In the area of fundamental research, the focus is on the development of advanced stochastic computational methods for uncertainty quantification, reliability analysis and risk assessment and management. Some of the recent activities were dealing with the problem of the reliability analysis of redundant systems (Patelli et al. 2011) and on global sensitivity analysis of large and complex structures (Patelli et al. 2010). Furthermore, Dr. Patelli’s implementations are coupled with the parallel computing features in order to be able to analyse realistic problems within feasible computational times (Patelli et al. 2012). The uncertainty quantification code developed by Dr. Patelli has been used by ENEA (Italian National agency for new technologies, Energy and sustainable economic development) for the quantification of the risk associated to a repository of radioactive waste, by KUL, Leuven, by ESA in the model validation of the GOCE satellite and it is currently been used by HET-engineering, Germany.He is author of many publications in ISI journals and in the proceeding of international conferences.
