Assoc. Prof. Giovanni Berselli
University of Genoa, Italy

Giovanni Berselli received the Master degree (magna cum laude) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Bologna in 2004 and 2009, respectively. He is now a faculty member in Design Methods and Tools for Industrial Engineering at the University of Genoa, where he teaches the courses Design of Automatic Machines and Computer Aided Design for the 1st and 2nd level Degrees in Mechanical/Robotic Engineering, and Marine/Nautical Engineering. He was previously Research Associate with the Escuela Superior de Ingenieros de la Universidad de Navarra, San Sebastian, Spain (2006), and with Monash University, Melbourne, Australia(2003-2004).

G. Berselli's scientific activity is focused on the development of engineering methods and tools for the conceptual and functional design, the modeling and optimization, and the experimental evaluation of integrated mechanical/mechatronic systems. Specific examples are:

  • Virtual Prototyping of Multi-physic Systems with application to sustainable robotics and green automation.
  • Integrated Design of Compliant Transducers and Sensory-Motor Technologies for safe and effective human-machine and environment-machine interaction.

Dr. Berselli has authored more than 90 publications in peer-reviewed international scientific journals, conferences and books. Editor of one international book, member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems, recipient of the IEEE I-RAS 2012 Young Author Best Paper Award, invited speaker in ten international research institution or universities. He is member of several Technical Committes (TC), including the IEEE TC on Sustainable Production Automation, the ASME TC on Modelling, Dynamics and Control of Adaptive Systems, and the Italian National Association of Machine Design (ADM). He is Session Orgnaizer for the ASME SMASIS Conference since 2011 and member of the Doctoral School Committee in Mechanical, Energy and Management Engineering (IMEG) at the University of Genoa.

Dr. Berselli is (or has been) involved in several European projects (EU-grants), projects of relevant national interest, and conventions with pubblic or private companies (e.g. Work Package Leader for the EU project AREUS - Automation and Robotics for EUropean Sustainabile manufacturing,, and Task Leader for the national project ADAPTIVE - National Technology Cluster “Intelligent Factory”).
