Marco Broccardo

Marco Broccardo is an Associate Professor of Civil, Environmental, and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Trento since 2020. He has previously held positions as an Assistant Professor at the University of Liverpool and Researcher and Lecturer at the Swiss Seismological Service at ETH Zurich. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and a designated emphasis in computational science and engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2014, and his M.S. in Civil Structural Engineering from the University of Padova in 2008. His research focuses on stochastic dynamics, structural reliability, and uncertainty quantification methods for engineering applications.
