I am looking to integrate AI methods for structural engineering applications.

– Luca Caracoglia, Affiliate Faculty, EAI

Luca Caracoglia is an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and is director of the Wind Engineering Research Group.

His research and professional interests lie in structural dynamics, random vibration, wind engineering, fluid-structure interaction of civil engineering structures, nonlinear cable network dynamics, wind energy, and wind-based energy harvesting systems. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in statics/solid mechanics, structural analysis, steel structure design, pre-stressed concrete, bridge design, wind engineering, and wind energy systems.

Caracoglia is the author/co-author of more than 90 peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters and has led more than 110 conference proceedings and presentations. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and has co-chaired a workshop by the American Association for Wind Engineering (AAWE) and the International Colloquium on Bluff Body Aerodynamics and Applications.

He currently serves on the board of directors of the AAWE and the Italian National Association for Wind Engineering executive board. He previously served on the executive board of the International Association for Wind Engineering. Within the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), he now sits on four committees, is associate editor of ASCE’s Journal of Bridge Engineering and Journal of Fluids and Structures, and was one of only 3 percent of members ever to be named fellow.

Before joining Northeastern, Caracoglia was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University and a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois. He earned his doctoral degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Trieste in Italy.
