Carlo Giovanni Lai’s current positions are:
•Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Pavia (Italy). Since 2016.
• Advisor at EUCENTRE (Pavia,Italy) of the Department of Risk Scenarios. Since 2003.
• Affiliate faculty at the University School for Advanced Studies IUSS, Pavia (Italy). Since 2006.
His main research interests are in earthquake geotechnical engineering and engineering seismology with special regard to stochastic ground response analyses, probabilistic and deterministic seismic hazard assessment, propagation of Rayleigh waves in dissipative continua, solution of dynamic soil-structure interaction problems, definition of the design earthquake at construction sites.
He has been coordinator of several research projects on various subjects of earthquake geotechnical engineering and engineering seismology funded by public as well as private agencies in Italy and abroad.
Currently he is the technical lead of a European research project on the assessment and mitigation of soil liquefaction potential across Europe.
