Professore Ordinario





Giulio Rosati received the Laurea degree "magna cum laude" in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padua, Italy, in 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in Machine Mechanics at the University of Brescia, Italy, in 2003. Associate Professor (since 2006) and Assistant Professor (since 2004) at the School of Engineering of the University of Padua, Italy. Full Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Padua since 2018, he teaches or has taught: Machine Mechanics, Mechanical Systems Control, Dynamics of Mechanical Drives, Industrial Robotics and Medical Robotics.
Coordinator of the Doctoral Program in Industrial Engineering (2020-2023), Associate of: IFToMM Italy, I-RIM (Italian Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines), the Italian Association of Machine Mechanics and the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN, 2018-2023). He is responsible of the Robotics and Automation Labs of the Department of Industrial Engineering.
Leader of several research contracts with major companies, his research interests include: machine mechanics, control of mechanical systems, industrial robotics, flexible automation, haptics and rehabilitation robotics. Author or co-author of more than 150 scientific papers and several patents (among which 5 PCT applications), he was invited speaker in several national and international conferences. He participated to several National and International Research Projects, among which the most recent are: two HORIZON2020 projects INCOMESS and IMPETUS (co-investigator) and two PRIN Projects on robotics, funded by the Italian Ministry of Research (Principal Investigator).
Main scientific collaborations: S.K. Agrawal, Columbia University in the City of New York (New York, NY, USA); D.J. Reinkensmeyer, Univ. of California at Irvine (Irvine, CA, USA); S. Kautz, Medical Univ. South Carolina (Charleston, SC, USA).
