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 Group and the Vertical Lift Research Center of Excellence (VLRCOE).

My research group develops new computational models and analysis methods to investigate aeroelastic phenomena in the next generation of aerospace vehicles, focusing on advancing the understanding of new configurations and supporting their design. 

I am a Senior Member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and of the Vertical Flight Society (VFS). I serve on the AIAA Structural Dynamics Technical Committee and VFS Dynamics Technical Committee, and I have been a key contributor to the Third Aeroelastic Prediction Workshop (AePW3) Large Deflection Working Group.

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