Department of Industrial Design Methods
University of Salerno, Italy
He was born in Salerno on 1975. Degree cum laude in Mechanical Engineering on 1999 at University of Salerno with degree thesis on Design Methods developed in FIAT Research Center; he won a thesis grant given by ATA (Technical Automotive Association). From 1999 to 2001 he work with Design Methods research group of University of Salerno. In 2000 he won a research grant for "optimization in mechanical design using non-standard logics" research topic. From 2001 to 2002 he works at FIAT research center, employed in Product development Methodologies group. Between 2001 and 2004 he developed his research activities in Italy and abroad on: Vehicle Experimental analysis: Delft (Olanda) - TNO Research Center – Feb. 2002 e Feb. 2004; Detroit (U.S.A.) - FIAT R/D- Mar.2002; Ispra (Italia) -JRC- Joint Research Center – Sept. 2002. CAD&FEM Simulation using explicit codes: Heidelberg (Germania) - ESI EuroPam- Ottobre 2001; Pomigliano dArco (Italia) - Elasis - Paul du Bois Course - May 2002. Since 2002 he was Assistant Professor at University of Salerno in Industrial Design Methods (Italian youngest Professor in his scientific discipline).
Virtual prototyping and Industrial Engineering Methods Development for application on Industrial Design and optimization. Research activities are focused also on Representation instruments, Modeling and Simulation techniques for product/process innovation; those instruments/techniques have been applied on Biomechanics, Ergonomic, HMI application.
