Stefania Bruschi graduated cum laude in Materials Engineering at University of Ferrara in July 1998. She got the PhD degree in Manufacturing Engineering, with the thesis “A new approach in testing and modelling the material response in hot forging operations”. From January 2004 to August 2006 she was assistant professor at DIMEG, University of Padova. From September 1st, 2006 to September 2011 she is Associate Professor at DIMS, University of Trento. Since November 2011 September she is full professor at University of Padua.

Educational activity
Teaching activity deals with courses of fundamentals of Manufacturing Technologies, Design of the Product for Manufacture and Environment both at University of Trento and University of Padova.

Main Research Topics
Her scientific activity deals with the following subjects: - development of new testing procedures for determining material rheological behaviour under hot forming conditions - analytical and AI-based (neural networks) modelling of material response under hot forming conditions - modelling of geometrical distortions and microstructural evolution of carbon steel-made components during cooling after hot forming operations - development of new testing procedures to evaluate material workability during bulk and sheet metal forming processes at elevated temperatures.

Membership and Appointment
She is associate member of CIRP (The International Academy for Production Engineering). She is a member of the Directory Board of AITeM (Italian Association for Manufacturing Technology). She takes part to national and international research associations, as ESAFORM (European Scientific Association for Material Forming).
