Daniele Celli is a Civil Engineer cum Laude (University of L’Aquila) who has been awarded with Ph.D. in Risk and Environmental, Territorial and Building Development from the Technical University of Bari (IT). His thesis examined the role of submerged berms on the stability of rubble mound breakwaters. During his Ph.D., he was visiting a student at the University of Stavanger (Norway), within the wave-soil-structure interaction framework. His research interests cover coastal structures, coastal hydrodynamics, wave-seabed-structure interaction, and hydraulic constructions. His core skills rely on the use of experimental and numerical tools. To date, he has published twelve papers (four as the first author) of which six in peer-reviewed journals. He is currently a Postdoc researcher at the University of L'Aquila (Italy), one of the members of the research group of Environmental and Maritime Hydraulics Laboratory (LIam).
