Curriculum Vitae
Eng. Martina Calzavara, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Management and Engineering (DTG) at the University of Padua.
After her master degree in Management Engineering in 2010, she worked for two years as business process analyst at Benetton group S.p.A.
Subsequently, she starts her Phd program at DTG, ended in 2016 with a thesis titled "Innovative methods and models for warehouse picking systems design".
She is currently teaching in various courses, lectures and workshops, at the University of Padua, and she is responsible of the course "Impianti meccanici" at the third year of the bachelor course in Management Engineering.

Her researches are mainly related to industrial and logistics systems design, management and modelling. In particular, these often focus on the design and on the improvement of warehousing and assembly systems, through the mathematical modelling of both economic and ergonomics aspects.
Her researches have been published in various international scientific journals and conference proceedings.

She is usually also involved in practical interdisciplinary research projects with Italian and foreign research institutes and important Italian companies.
