Prof. Dr.-Ing. Riccardo La Magna


Riccardo La Magna is a civil engineer active in both research and practice. He received his doctorate summa cum laude from the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart. His dissertation focused on flexurally active structures, in particular the geometry and mechanics of shells and plates and their numerical simulation.

He worked as a senior structural engineer and project manager at the engineering firm str.ucture GmbH and held visiting professorships at the chairs of structural engineering at UdK and TU Berlin. Since 2020, he has been a Senior Associate at Jan Knippers Ingenieure, where he is involved in the development and project management of high-tech projects using innovative materials and advanced manufacturing techniques.

His research focuses on simulation technology, innovative structural systems and new materials for civil engineering.
