Dr Enrico Salviti completed his MSc in Industrial Engineering at the Department of Engineering of the University of Ferrara (Italy) in October 2011.
In May 2014, after a period as a graduate researcher, he moved to Oxford to undertake a doctorate in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. In June 2017, after completing his DPhil, Enrico was appointed as Postdoctoral Researcher in the same department under the supervision of Professor Alexander Korsunsky.
In August 2018, he obtained his Chartered Engineering (CEng) registration with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and, since October 2018, is a college lecturer at Lady Margaret Hall.
Enrico's research mainly focuses on the evaluation and modeling of residual stress across the scales, as well as fatigue and fracture problems in processed, welded and additively manufactured metallic materials. He is also interested in biomaterials with hierarchical structure (i.e. human teeth and bamboo) and shape memory effect in polymeric materials.
Enrico is often involved in industry-oriented projects aimed at assessing the performance of engineering components and structures, particularly for aerospace applications. A wide range of experimental techniques, at length-scales ranging from macro- nano-scale, are usually involved in his experimental work (e.g. synchrotron-based X-ray, Electron/Ion Microscopy and related techniques, static and cyclic load-controlled tests etc).
He also enjoys using Finite Element Methods for the numerical modeling of results from experiments.
