Cristina Riso


I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech. 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 investigates aeroelastic phenomena in the next generation of aerospace vehicles using novel computational models and analysis methods, aiming to advance our understanding of new configurations and support their design. 

I am a Senior Member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, serving on its Structural Dynamics Technical Committee, and a Member of the Vertical Flight Society (VFS), serving on its 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.
