about

Hi! I am Daniele Malomo, Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering at McGill University and research director at struct-lab. I received my PhD in Civil Engineering at the University of Pavia (Italy) in 2019. Prior to join McGill in 2020, I was a Postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley (USA).

At struct-lab, we do research on earthquake engineering, old structures, climate change-adapted design, numerical and experimental simulations.

How to assess effectively the structural response of existing structures? Can we reuse old buildings to avoid demolition/reconstruction? Can we develop more sustainable novel construction technologies?

These are some of the key questions we are investigating these days. To this end, we connect and collaborate with both industry and academic partners as well as national and international governmental and non-profit organizations.

Since 2021, I serve in the Board of Directors of the Canadian chapter of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). My students and I are also actively involved in professional societies, e.g. the CSCE Existing Structures Committee and the International Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Structures of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH).

Our work was awarded by The Masonry Society (TMS), Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER), International Association of Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE). Interested in our research? Join us!

Our research is funded by various agencies and institutions, e.g. the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), National Resources Canada (NRCan).

 

Ongoing studies include:

  • Seismic assessment of Eastern Canada's old masonry buildings

  • Combined structural-energy retrofits with engineered timber

  • Corrosion and deterioration evaluation in concrete bridges

  • Climate change design adaptation for new masonry structures

  • Advanced discrete element simulation of large structures

For our research, we use advanced numerical modelling techniques, experimental testing and digital surveying tools. See here!

We also do research in Engineering Education, focusing on the development of enhanced and more inclusive teaching and learning strategies.

Our list of refereed publications is here.

I love teaching! Doing it at McGill is also particularly exciting as our students are great - very passionate and eager to learn. I currently teach four courses:

In 2021 and 2022, I was awarded the Best Professor Award from the McGill Civil Engineering Undergraduate Society - thanks!

In 2022, I have received the McGill ELATE Faculty Scholar Award. Through the generous support of the McGill Faculty of Engineering, we are devising new ways to improve post-pandemic engineering education.

In 2023, I received the Samuel and Ida Fromson Outstanding Teaching Award in Engineering, that recognizes excellence in teaching within the Faculty.

I'll see you in class!
