Marilena Greco is professor in marine hydrodynamics at the dept. of Marine Technology, NTNU, Trondheim, with a position funded for five years by DNV (Det Norske Veritas). She is part-time collaborator as Researcher Director at the research centre CNR-INM, Institute of Marine Engineering, Italy, and has been Specially Appointed Professor (Honorary position) in 2020-2021 at OSAKA University, Japan. Since 2004, she was associated with the Centre of Excellence (CoE) CeSOS in Trondheim, first as visiting Researcher and then as Adjunct Professor. In 2012, she was awarded, with other 5 key scientists, by the Research Council of Norway for establishment and management of the CoE on Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems, NTNU AMOS, worldwide recognized as a leading research centre in marine operations; its budget in 10 years is more than 800 MNOK, with a target of 100 PhD scholarships. Up to 2022, M. Greco supervised 43 MSc theses, 5 PhD students (6 are ongoing), 3 post-docs. She has H-index 25 (Scholar), co-authored more than 120 publications, is Associate Editor of Journal of Fluids and Structures and contributes as referee for leading journals in fluid dynamics and marine hydrodynamics. Her research interests are within marine hydrodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, nonlinear free-surface and multiphase flows, fluid-structure interactions, hydroelasticity. The investigations tools are primarily numerical and theoretical, but also experiments are used. Recent focus is on bio-inspired marine concepts, renewable energy sources in marine environment, aquaculture, safety of vehicles in extreme sea conditions.
