Giulio Gori

Giulio Gori is an Assistant Professor of Fluid Dynamics at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of Politecnico di Milano.
Prof. Gori was awarded a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering in January 2019, from Politecnico di Milano, with a thesis focused on developing numerical methods and computational tools for renewable energy applications.
In 2017, he was awarded an Early Stage Researcher scholarship in the frame of the UTOPIAE MSCA-ETN (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action, European Training Network), and he moved to INRIA-Ecole Polytechnique in Paris to work on uncertainty quantification and robust optimization.
He re-joined Politecnico di Milano and became an assistant professor of Fluid Mechanics in 2021.
In 2022, he was awarded a HORIZON-MSCA Postdoc Fellowship by the European Commission, becoming the Principal Investigator for the UN-BIASED project, focused on developing multi-fidelity techniques for enhancing the aerodynamic design of multi-rotor vehicles for Urban Air Mobility.
Currently, he is the lecturer of the Msc course “Fundamental of Hypersonics” at Politecnico di Milano.

Prof. Gori’s fields of interest cover many topics in aerospace engineering, including in-flight icing, hypersonics, turbomachinery, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics modeling, uncertainty quantification, robust optimization, and multi-fidelity models for aerospace applications.
With particular reference to the TRACES project, his expertise covers the development of in-flight icing models, three-dimensional simulation tools for predicting ice accretion on airplanes and helicopters, uncertainty propagation and sensitivity analysis, and robust optimization of thermal ice protection systems.
