Nazarena Bruno received her PhD (with honor) from the University of Parma (Italy) on March 2018. Her dissertation focuses on the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling) methodology to support documentation, management, and planned conservation of historic buildings, with particular regard to database design.
After her PhD, she was a Research Fellow at Politecnico di Milano (Department of Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering) where she carried out research within the SIR research project “Building Information Modelling for the planned conservation of Cultural Heritage: even a Geomatic question” and at University of Parma (Department of Engineering and Architecture) where she investigated interoperability between Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and BIM.
She was Visiting Research Associate at the School of Engineering, University of Newcastle (Australia) where she worked on the development of new and efficient photogrammetric data acquisition and processing methodologies for geotechnical risk monitoring and assessment.
Nazarena’s research interests include Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM); database design for BIM and GIS applications; historical cartography analysis and georeferencing; point cloud segmentation; advanced techniques of survey and Structure from Motion and related applications in architectural, environmental and archaeological fields.
She is currently a non tenure-track researcher at University of Parma for Topography and Cartography disciplines.
