Pietro Salizzoni

Professor in fluid mechanics (CNU 60)MFAE/LMFA

Pietro Salizzoni holds a Bachelor degree in Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Torino and a PhD in Environmental Fluid Mechanics. He is currently Professor at École Centrale de Lyon. His teaching and research activities address physical phenomena associated with natural and technological risks, both accidental and persistent, with a focus on the dynamics of environmental flows. In particular, his studies deal with pollutant dispersion in the urban atmosphere, the propagation of hot smokes in free and confined environments, the ventilation of road tunnel in case of fire, the characterization of atmospheric dispersion of toxic and flammable substances, the transfer within the environment and food chain of dioxin and other persistent organic pollutants.
