Luigi Berardi was born in Ruvo di Puglia - Bari (Italy) in 1979. He has got his Master of Science degree (cum laude) in 2004 in Civil Environmental Engineering and a PhD in Civil Environmental Engineering Sciences in 2009 at Technical University of Bari (Italy).
Italian National Scientific Qualification for Associate Professor in “Hydraulics, Hydrology, Hydraulic and Marine Constructions” (since 02.12.2013)
Currently research fellow and contract professor at Technical University of Bari.
The main research experiences of Dr. Luigi Berardi are concerned with the application of data-mining techniques for analyzing pipe assets and development of decision support systems for the proactive management of sewers and water distribution systems.
He works at the Technical University of Bari, Civil Enginering and Architecture Department.
As PhD Studend, He was Visiting Researcher at the Centre for Water Systems, Department of Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, University of Exeter (UK). From February 2005 to March 2006 he spent one year in the Centre for Water Systems being involved in a research project whose main topic was the “Development of a decision support tool for water system management based on a multi-objective evolutionary technique”. He has been working on the applications of the evolutionary data-mining techniques for modelling asset failures in pipe networks, and on the applications of the population-based evolutionary techniques on the development of decision support systems for water system rehabilitation/renewal.
Currently Luigi Berardi is research fellow at Technical University of Bari working on a reasearch project aimed at developing tools for analysis and management of water distributon networks.
