Dr. Enrico Ronchi joined the Department from the 1st of August 2013 as a Post-doctoral researcher. Enrico took his PhD at the Politecnico di Bari (Italy) in 2012, where he defended the thesis “Evacuation modelling in road tunnel fires”. He already worked at the Department during four months in the summer of 2012. He has been a guest researcher at the Fire Research Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology - NIST - (USA), the Department of Psychology at University of Würzburg (Germany), and the GIDAI Group at University of Cantabria (Spain). His main research expertise is human behaviour in fire and evacuation modelling in buildings and transportation (tunnels). Enrico will be involved in the project “Evacuation route design” (Utformning av utrymningsväg) sponsored by the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket). Enrico's research will focus on testing different way-finding installations for road tunnel evacuation through experiments in Virtual Reality.
