Research

Lucia's research interests are the performance and production of Al-based alloys and their composites. Her research currently focuses on cast Al-Si alloys and their reinforcement with SiC particles to obtain metal matrix composites (MMCs).

Current research project

  • ProForAl - Properties and formability of Al-SiCp MMCs. Funded by The Knowledge Foundation (Prospekt, KK-Stiftelsen).

Biography

Lucia holds Bachelor (2014) and Master (2016) degrees in Materials Engineering from the University of Padua (Padua, Italy), with thesis projects developed within the Metallurgy research group.

In April 2020 she received her PhD in Engineering Science from the University of Ferrara (Ferrara, Italy). Her thesis project focused on the influence of alloying elements and melt treatments on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the Al-7Si-Mg cast alloys.
The activities were in collaboration with the Mazzucconi Foundries (Ponte San Pietro, Italy) and the Department of Materials and Manufacturing at the Jönköping University (Jönköping, Sweden), where she spent six months as a visiting PhD student.

In 2020 she got a research fellowship within the RIMMEL project, with a focus on the mechanical and microstructure characterization of additively manufactured Al-10Si alloys after thermal exposure.

In February 2021 she joined the Department of Materials and Manufacturing at the Jönköping School of Engineering as a postdoc researcher. She is the project leader of the ProForAl project (Prospekt, KK-Stiftelsen), which focuses on Al-Si based metal matrix composites.
