Landolf received his PhD in 2012 in Structural Mechanics from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). His PhD research focused on tensegrity structures employing dynamic relaxation and advanced computing methods for the design and analysis of an active deployable tensegrity footbridge. His current research goal is to study plant movements in order to identify shape-shifting mechanisms that could be employed in civil structures to improve environmental and structural performance. His research interests include adaptive structures, bio-mimesis, structural design and optimization and computer-aided engineering.
