Nonlinear oscillations of one dimensional, elastic, structural systems (wires, beams);
Critical and post-critical behaviour of thin-walled beams;
Nonlinear interaction among nearly-simultaneous buckling modes;
Nonlinear dynamics of wires orbiting systems;
Localization phenomena in Dynamics and Buckling;
Sensitivity analysis of defective and nearly-defective dynamical systems;
Aero-elastic stability phenomena in linear and nonlinear systems;
Passive control of aero-elastic oscillations by Tuned Mass Dampers and Nonlinear Energy Sinks;
Perturbation methods for multiple-bifurcations analysis of multi-parameter systems;
Dynamics and buckling of linear and nonlinear spatially-periodic systems;
