After graduating in Geotechnical Engineering at the Polytechnic of Turin in 2009, Irene joined Geotechnical Consulting Group in London, where she worked for the Crossrail project. In 2010, Irene won a PhD scholarship from the Government of Hong Kong and completed her PhD in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Coop (An experimental Investigation of the Influence of Weathering on Saprolitic Soils from Hong Kong). Afterwards she joined the Geotechnical research group at the DICAM Department and at the Interdepartmental Industrial research of the University of Bologna, where she worked on field monitoring of river embankments.  In 2016, Irene joined the Technical University of Denmark as Assitant Professor and has since worked on laboratory characterization of Paleogene clays. Furthermore, she continues working on unsaturated soil mechanics and monitoring of infrastructure under the changing loads induced by climate changes.
