Marino Quaresimin is full Professor of Machine Design at the Department of Management and Engineering – University of Padova.
His research interests are on polymeric composites and nanocomposites, with particular reference to the study of the structural response and the damage mechanics and the development of predictive models. Understanding and description of the behaviour of composite materials and structures under cyclic (fatigue) loading are of actual interest as well as modelling of the toughening mechanisms and multifunctional response in composites.
He is author of more than 350 scientific publications, with contributions in high impact journals, books and conferences. He is editor of Composites Science and Technology and he was the president of the European Society for Composite Materials
