Assoc Prof Domenico Campolo

Domenico CAMPOLO is currently Assistant Professor at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
He received his Laurea Degree from the University of Pisa in 1998 and the Diploma Degree in Engineering from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in 1999. In 2002, he earned his PhD in Micro-Engineering from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, while working at MiTech Lab (currently, the CRIM Lab).
During the Fall 1998 he was working at the EECS Dept. of ZheJiang University, HangZhou, P.R. China as a visiting graduate student. In the period 2000-2003, he was at UC-Berkeley (USA) as a Visiting Scholar and, after 2002, as a post-doc working on the MFI (Micromechanical Flying Insect) project.
He is co-author of more than 35 peer-reviewed papers on international journals and conference proceedings. He has served as reviewer of top international journals and conferences in the general fields of Robotics and Mechatronics. He is Member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), the IEEE Engineering
in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) and of the Italian National Group of Bioengineering (GNB).
Research Interests
His research interests include mechatronic technologies with application to the new emerging fields of Phenomics and Neuro-Developmental Engineering, in both animal and human models; biomimetic microrobotics, including: design, fabrication, development and control of biologically inspired smart actuators and sensors.
