Simona Gurrì, PhD candidate, Politecnico di Torino (Italy)

I am a second-year PhD student in Energetics majoring in Trasport Systems at Politecnico di Torino. I have a BSc and an MSc in Mechanical engineering, and before getting into doctoral school, I was a research scholar at the DIATI Dept. at Politecnico di Torino, where I collaborated with some companies to evaluate the impact of innovative solutions on the design and maintenance of new commuter trains. I carried out my master thesis at Alstom SA, performing a risk analysis of the testing process and proposing a systemic approach for the predictive maintenance of the braking system. My main interest is railway freight haulage, in particular, I am focusing my doctoral research on new bi-modal distributed-power freight electro-trains as a solution to increase the chances of achieving a modal shift as advocated by the European Union to meet compelling sustainability goals, through the use of alternative fuels.
