Gennaro Senatore is a scientist and engineer working at the intersection of structural mechanics and optimization, structural control and computational design. He works as Director of Research on Adaptive Structures at the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK) of the University of Stuttgart. He has worked as Research Lead at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) and University College London and previously as the Head of computational design & research at London-based practice Expedition Engineering. Specialized in developing custom workflows that involve structural and geometrical optimization to enable time-efficient generation and testing of multiple what-if scenarios for the conceptual design of structural configuratinos having complex and unusual geometry. Gennaro Senatore’s research work uniquely combines structural optimization and control with sustainability to create smart structural systems and components that enable new designs for civil and mechanical engineering.
