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 group develops new 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, and I am a contributor to the Aeroelastic Prediction Workshop (AePW).

Before joining Georgia Tech in 2022, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I earned my B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Sapienza University of Rome.
