Irene Rocchi graduated in Civil Engineering in 2007 at the University of Bologna presenting a study on the geotechnical characterisation of the soil in Pisa by means of CPTU. She then moved on to the Polytechnic of Turin for her MSc in Geotechnical Engineering and in 2008 followed the MSc in Soil Mechanics & Engineering Seismology as an Erasmus student at Imperial College, London . 

After graduation, 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 and here she works on laboratory and field soil characterisation and thermal properties for energy applications.
