Enrico Antonini's work covers fundamental aspects that go from micro-scale physics, e.g., aerodynamics of wind turbine blades, to large-scale physics, e.g., macro-energy systems integrating variable wind and solar generation.

His research is motivated by the need to provide sustainable solutions to energy systems and the human communities that rely on them in an era of global environmental change and rapid growth of energy consumption. His goal is to provide evidence-based arguments to governments, international institutions, and industries, assisting them in their strategic decisions as we move into changing climates and decarbonized energy systems.

Before joining the Department of Global Ecology at Carnegie, Enrico Antonini obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Padua (Italy) and his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from the University of Toronto (Canada).
