Research summary

Dr. Federico Bosi's research activity is devoted to studying the mechanics of solids and structures, with particular interest in the non-linear, time-dependent, and thermo-mechanical response of highly deformable materials and flexible mechanical systems. During his career, he has dealt with problems related to elasticity, viscoelastoplasticity, constitutive modeling of materials, configurational mechanics, large deformation, structural stability, and deployable structures.

Teaching summary

Dr. Federico Bosi lectures the course of Elasticity and Plasticity - MECH0026 (third year BEng/MEng). Previously, he was the lecturer for Engineering Dynamics - MECH0006 (1st year BEng/MEng).

Dr. Federico Bosi is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London. Prior to joining UCL in 2017 as a Senior Lecturer, he was a postdoctoral scholar (2015-2016) and a senior postdoctoral scholar (2017) in the Space Structure Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, USA.

He earned his Ph.D. degree (2014) in Engineering of Civil and Mechanical Structural Systems from the University of Trento, where he was a Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers in the Solid and Structural Mechanics Group. Before this, he received a Bachelor (2009) and a full-honors Master degree (2011) in Civil Engineering from the University of Trento, Italy.
