He graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Genova in 1986. From 1986 to 1990 he was employed in the R&D departments of industries operating in the field of factory automation. In 1990 he was enrolled as a researcher at the University of Genoa; from 1998 to 2005 he has been associate professor at the University of Ancona; since March 2005 he has been Full Professor of Machine Mechanics at the Dept. Industrial Engineering & Mathematical Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Marche in Ancona. He is Director of the HD3FLAB Laboratory (Human Digital Flexible “Factory of the Future). He is author of more than 200 papers, co-inventor of two patents, Associate Editor of the Journal of Mechanical Design and member of ASME and IFToMM Italy.


He has coordinated the national research programme PRIN2005: “miniPAR: Mini-robot for advanced technological applications” and was principal investigator in several international research projects on robotics and automation subjects such as the excellence networks EURON I e II (European Robotics Research Network) and CLAWAR (CLimbing And WAlking Robots), the Integrated Project LEAPFROG of FP6 on the automation of textile and apparel industry.
His fields of research are mainly mechatronics, industrial and advanced robotics and design of mechanical systems.
