Profile: Dr. Giacomo Dalla Chiara

I’m originally from Vicenza, a city in the north-east of Italy, and I love olive oil on freshly baked bread!

After taking a windy academic path through economics, statistics and system engineering, I found that the field of transport and logistics combines all these disciplines to study modern pressing issues related to the sustainability and livability of urban mobility systems.

I am working on three main projects:

Research Associate, Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics Center
