Professore Associato





Paolo Boscariol was born in Sacile (PN) in 1982. Achieved the Master degree in Electronic Engineering in January 2008, at the University of Udine, Italy. Achieved the PhD in Industrial and Information Engineering at the University od Udine in 2012, discussing the thesis: "Modeling and Control of Flexible link mechanisms", developed under the guidance of Prof. Alessandro Gasparetto. Has been a research associate ad the DIEGM, University of Udine from 2012 to 2016. Has joined DTG in Vicenza, University of Padova in August 2016 as a fixed-term assistant professor, since April 2018 is a tenured-track assistant professor, and in April 2021 as an Associate Professor with the same department. Has tought several courses at the University of Udine, University of Bolzano, and University of Padova. He currently teaches Mechanics of Machines.
His research interests inlclude the motion planning of mechatronic devices, the energy-efficient operation of automatic machines, the modeling and control of flexible-link mechanisms.
