Angelo Algieri is Assistant Professor of Systems for Energy and Environment. He received the (5-year) degree in Mechanical Engineering with laude at the University of Calabria (Italy), the post-degree diploma in Metallurgy at the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia (Italy) and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Politecnico di Bari (Italy). He was at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (Belgium), where he obtained the post-degree diploma in Fluid Dynamics with honours. Following two post-doctoral years of research at the Mechanics Department of the University of Calabria (Italy), he worked on the fluid dynamic characterization of internal combustion engines. He is the Departmental Deputy Director and ECTS coordinator for the international exchange programmes of the course degree in Management Engineering.
