University of Salerno
Massimo Latour is researcher at the University of Salerno (Italy). After the Master he won the selection for a Doctorate grant in Structural Engineering at University of Salerno where he got the PhD in 2011 with a thesis entitled "Theoretical and experimental analysis of dissipative beam-to-column joints in moment resisting steel frames”. In the same year, he became a post-doctoral fellow at Salerno University where he is currently working. His research activity mainly deals with seismic design and finite element modelling of steel structures and the development of strategies for supplemental damping to be applied in seismic zones.
