Umberto Iemma (born in Rome, Italy in 1962) joined Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of the Roma Tre University in 1996. Currently, is Full Professor of Aerospace Structures and Design at the Department of Engineering of the same University. Involved in aeroacoustics-related research since the beginning of his research activity in 1993, during the last decade has focused his research on the multidisciplinary conceptual design of innovative, environment-friendly aircraft under aeroacoustic constraints and objectives. Specific research topics pertain the theoretical and numerical modelling of aeroacoustic metamaterials, the management of uncertainties for robust and reliable multiobjective optimization, and the development of adaptive metamodeling technique for aeroacoustic applications. Heavily involved in the research program funded by the European Commission has participated to 14 European Research Projects since 1995. Currently, is the coordinator of the project AERIALIST (Advanced Aircraft-Noise alleviation devices using metamaterials), and responsible of the Roma Tre research unit in the H2020 projects ANIMA (Aviation Noise Impact Management through Novel Approaches) and ARTEM (Aircraft noise Reduction Technologies and related Environmental iMpact). Is author of more than 180 papers published on international scientific journals or presented at international conferences, and member of AVT Expert panels for aeroacoustics and stochastic optimization since 2016.
