Dr. Francesco Fedele is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Vermont in 2004 and earned his Laurea (magna cum laude) in Civil Engineering from the University Mediterranea, Italy, in 1998. Dr. Fedele joined the faculty at Georgia Tech in 2007 after a postdoctoral research position at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. His current research focus is on nonlinear wave phenomena, coastal and ocean engineering, fluid mechanics, wave mechanics, sustainable ocean energy, signal processing and computer vision, computational methods and inverse problems. The corresponding research thrusts are: wave turbulence, rogue waves, stereo imaging for geophysical applications, algorithms for biomedical and radar imaging, mathematical modeling and experimentation on renewable devices to harness energy from tidal streams. Dr. Fedele’s publication record includes 45 scholarly journal papers (h index 12, ISI Web of Science, 15 Scholar Google) and 44 papers in peer-reviewed conference proceedings. While at Georgia Tech, Dr. Fedele’s research appeared in high Impact Factor (IF) journals: Physical Review Letters (IF=7.943), IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (IF=3.199), Journal of Fluid Mechanics (IF=2.453), IEEE Transactions on Geosciences and Remote Sensing (IF=2.995), Journal of Physical Oceanography (IF=2.481), Europhysics Letters (EPL, IF=2.171) Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (IF=2.027), Physics of Fluids (IP=1.998), Coastal Engineering (IF=2.076), Physica D (IP=1.857), Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics JETP (IF=1.577), EGU journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (IF=1.792), and Ocean Modeling (IF=2.461).
