Renata Archetti

Associate Professor in Hydraulics

to DICAM  University of Bologna

My academic and scientific path has given me the opportunity of a diverse environment and realities, from having my 5 years degree in Civil Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, masters degree in Environmental Engineering from University College Cork, Ireland and a PhD in Hydraulics Engineering from Politecnico di Milano. I have worked as a research fellow at University of Brescia’s Engineering department, a visiting researcher in UK, Germany, Denmark and Spain. I became a Professor of Hydraulics in 2015 at the University of Bologna where I teach Ocean and coastal Engineering to International masters’ students. For over 25 years my research activity has been carried out mainly in the field of hydraulics and fluid mechanics, deepening aspects related to applications at sea. I am an expert in hydrodynamics and coastal morphodynamics, pollution at sea, interaction of current waves and structures both on the coast and in the open sea. Since 1992, I have been consulting in the fields of environmental, hydraulic and coastal engineering.
