Associate Professor in Applied Mechanics at the Department of Engineering and Applied Science of Bergamo University. He graduated in Mechanical Engineering at "Politecnico di Milano" in 1991. and in 1996 he got his PhD in Applied Mechanics, from the same University, From November 1996 to October 1999 he worked as “graduated” Technician at the Department of Mechanical Engineering o Brescia University. From November 1999 to October 2002 he was researcher at the University of Bergamo, where, since November 2002 he holds the position of associate professor in Applied Mechanics. Actually he teaches “Mechanics of robots” and “Drives for Mechanical Systems” (6+6 ECTS) in the MSc course in Mechanical Engineering. He also teaches “Theoretical and applied mechanics” (6 ECTS) in the BSc course in Technology Engineering for Health.
His research interests has covered both sport and rehabilitation biomechanics with particular regard to the study of devices for the assessment of dynamic inputs to the vestibula, and for for the analysis of human motion. Several researches have been conducted in the field of automatic machinery analysis and design and on the dynamic of 3D free-flying space manipulators. His current research interests include robotics, mechatronics, kinematics and dynamics of multibody systems. He has experience with analysis, synthesis and optimization of linkages and cam mechanisms.
