Cristina Riso


I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech, where I am affiliated with the Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics (ASD) discipline area and the Vertical Lift Research Center of Excellence (VLRCOE).

My Structural Dynamics and Aeroelasticity Research Laboratory develops novel computational models and analysis methods to investigate aeroelastic phenomena in the next generation of aerospace vehicles, focusing on advancing the fundamental understanding of new configurations and supporting their design. 

I am a Senior Member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and a Member of the Vertical Flight Society (VFS). I serve on the AIAA Structural Dynamics Technical Committee and the VFS Dynamics Technical Committee. I am also involved in the AIAA Aeroelastic Prediction Workshop (AePW) as a member of the Large Deflection Working Group.

Before joining Georgia Tech, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I earned my B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Sapienza University of Rome.
