Dr Giacomo Squicciarini is a Lecturer within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Giacomo is currently appointed as Lecturer in the Dynamics group within the ISVR at the University of Southampton. He is involved in various aspects of Railway Noise and Vibration, particularly rolling noise and curve squeal, and vibroacoustics.

Before joining this University Giacomo obtained a PhD at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) on the vibroacoustics of piano soundboards.

Giacomo teaches Dynamics, Acoustical Engineering Design and Noise Control at undergraduate and master students.

In 2013 Giacomo was awarded the Best poster presentation award at the 11th International Workshop on Railway Noise.

Research interests

  • Theoretical modelling of rolling noise: predictions of noise radiated by a train wheel rolling on a rail.
  • Curve squeal: measurements and models for understanding and mitigating curve squeal noise
  • Railway noise measurements. Various aspects of railway noise measurements including microphone arrays for source identification.
  • Noise radiation from plates and acoustic response.
  • Piano acoustics: experiments and numerical modelling of grand piano soundboards.
