Claudia Fecarotti is Assistant Professor in Resilient Asset Management and Maintenance at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUe), Netherlands, since January 2019. She is a member of the Operations, Planning, Accounting and Control Group (OPAC), Department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Science. She is also member of EAISI and the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering. Before joining TUe she was a Research Associate within the Resilience Engineering Research Group (RERG) at the University of Nottingham, where she also obtained her PhD in Reliability Engineering and Infrastructure Asset Management in 2018 from the Dept. of Civil Engineering. She is currently an associate member of the RERG. She holds a BSc in Civil Engineering and a MSc in Transportation Systems and Infrastructures from the University of Palermo, Italy. 


Her research interests are in the areas of reliability engineering, maintenance modelling and optimization and infrastructure asset management. She design new methodologies to support the planning, operation and maintenance of complex safety-critical systems for seamless performance and lower total costs. Main application domains have been road infrastructures, fuel cell systems, railway systems, off-shore oil and gas, complex machines (e.g. robots used in the agricultural sector). She aims at conducting rigorous research which is also relevant to industry and society so as to bridge the gap between purely methodological approaches and practical industrial needs. 


She is recipient of two awards by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE): (1) the IMechE’s Best Young Researcher Award 2013 for the research “Modelling railway service reliability”, and (2) the IMechE’s Donald Julius Groen Prize 2017 for the best paper published in the international journal Part O: Journal of Risk and Reliability Engineering, “A Petri net model for railway bridges maintenance”. She is in the Editorial Board of Journal of Infrastructure Systems (American Society of Civil Engineers - ASCE).
