Raffaele Di Gregorio is currently Full Professor of Machine Mechanics at the Engineering Department of the University of Ferrara, Italy. He received the M.Sc. degree in nuclear engineering, the M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering and the M.Sc. degree in automotive engineering from the Polytechnic of Turin in 1982, 1985 and 1988, respectively. And the Ph.D. degree in applied mechanics from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1992.
In 1983, he received a grant of the ATA (the Italian Automotive Technical Association) for spending one year as research fellow at the FIAT Research Center, Orbassano (Italy).
Between 1984 and 1992, he served as officer of the Technical Corp in the Italian Army; first, at the Military School of Turin, and, successively, at the STAVECO (Military Vehicle Factory) of Bologna.
In 1993, he taught at the ITIS O. Belluzzi of Bologna, Italy.
Since 1994, he has joined the Engineering Department of the University of Ferrara, Italy.
His research interests include kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms and machines, biomechanics, robotics, vibration mechanics and vehicle mechanics.
He has been author and coauthor of about 60 technical papers published in refereed international journals, and as many papers published in conference proceedings.
He has been “observer” of the IFToMM Technical Committee “Computational Kinematics” since 2007, and “member” of the IFToMM Permanent Commission “Standardization of Terminology” since 2009. Moreover, he is ASME member and served as "general member" of the ASME Mechanisms and Robotics Committee between 2007 and 2012; since 2013, he has continued to serve this Committee as past member. In these roles, he has actively participated in the organizzation of International Conferences on Mechanisms and/or Robotics.
Eventually, he has been
- Editorial Board member since May 8, 2007, and “Section Editor” for the section “Manipulators”, since September 22, 2009, of “The Open Mechanical Engineering Journal”, (TOMEJ; website: www.bentham.org/open/tomej);
- Editorial Board member since October 4, 2011, of the “International Journal of Mechanisms and Robotic Systems” (IJMRS; website: www.inderscience.com/ijmrs );
- Editorial Board member since May 8, 2012, of the “International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems” for the topic “Robot Manipulation and Control” (IJARS; website: http://www.intechopen.com/journals/international_journal_of_advanced_robotic_systems#d1 );
- Associate Editor since October 19, 2011, of the “International Journal of Robotics and Automation” (IJRA; website: http://www.actapress.com/Content_of_Journal.aspx?JournalID=147#editors-3 );
- Editor in Chief since June 27, 2012, of the “Journal of Mechanical Engineering and Automation” (JMEA; website: http://journal.sapub.org/jmea ).
