Andrea Dominijanni is an Associate Professor at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy), where he received his PhD degree in 2005.
His research activity is devoted to ground improvement methods, containment systems for landfills and polluted sites, contaminant transport in the subsoil and chemo-mechanical coupled phenomena in clay soils.
He is currently the Chairman of Technical Committee 215 “Environmental Geotechnics” (TC 215) of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), after holding the position of Secretary of TC 215 from 2010 to 2021.
He has given invited lectures and held special courses at several national and international conferences in the field of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, including the European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, the International Congress on Environmental Engineering and the International Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics.
He has been a member of the organizing committee of several international conferences and workshops, including the first edition of the International Symposium on Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics (Torino, 2013).
He is a member of the Editorial Board of the following journals: Environmental Geotechnics (ICE Publishing, the UK), Construction and Geotechnics (Perm National Research Polytechnic University, Russia) and Acta Scientiarum Polonorum – Architectura (Civil Engineering) (Warsaw University of Life Science Press, Poland).
He is the author of a book and more than 90 scientific publications comprising journal papers, conference proceedings and book chapters.
As far as his professional activity is concerned, Andrea Dominijanni has been a geotechnical consultant for the design of barrier and remediation systems for several sites of relevant national interest, a technical consultant in civil trials, and worked on special projects, such as the numerical modelling of the Messina bridge foundations and the assessment of the geotechnical and environmental safety conditions of an 18.000.000 m³ red mud disposal site.
