Andrea Zampiron began his research career at the University of Aberdeen, where he completed his PhD in 2019. His doctoral research focused on hydraulic resistance and flow structure in open-channel flow over streamwise ridges. Afterwards, Andrea continued working in the field of wall-bounded turbulent flows, first at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of Prof. Ivan Marusic and later at the University of Aberdeen under the guidance of Prof. Vladimir Nikora. 

As part of the MSCA project "Roughness-induced secondary Currents in ARterial flows with stEnts" (CARE), Andrea will be investigating the dynamics of large-scale flow motions that may arise due to the presence of stents in arterial flows. CARE will feature extensive experimental measurements covering flow conditions similar to those found in the arteries of the human body. To analyse the flow field and detect any changes caused by the stents, an advanced stereoscopic particle-image velocimetry system will be utilised. This experimental technique allows for non-intrusive planar velocity measurements, enabling a comprehensive characterisation of the flow behaviour. The project will be conducted entirely at UNIPD under the supervision of Prof. Stefano Lanzoni.
