Short Bio: Alessandro Marino was born in Potenza, Italy, on 1st of March 1982. He received the Laurea Degree suuma cum Laude in Computer Science (5 years course) in March 2006 in Computer Science at the University of Naples Federico II. In March 2010 he received the Ph.D Degree (3 years) in Industrial Innovation Engineering at the University of Basilicata, Italy.
From April 2007 to September 2007 he was visiting scholar at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tenessee, under the supervision of Prof. Lynne E. Parker.
From June 2010 to September 2011 he was visiting scholar at the Institute for Systems and Robotics of the Instituto Superior Técnico under the supervision of Prof. António Pascoal.
From December 2011 to September 2018, he was Assistant Professor of Automatic Control at the University of Salerno, Italy.
From October 2018, he is Associate Professor in Automatic Control and Robotus at Uiversity of Cassino and Southern Lazio.
He was Principal Investigator of the H2020 Project LABOR-Lean robotized AssemBly and cOntrol of composite aeRostructures under GA n. 785419.
From 2013 to 2016, he was managing LOCOMACHS and STEP FAR projects about the application of robotized solutions to aircraft manufacturing.
From 2007 to 2009 he was part of the ROSED Research Project aimed at building a PC-based open architecture for cooperative robotic work cells funded by the Italian Space Agency.
From 2010 to 2011 he was part of the European Project Co3-AUVs (Cooperative Cognitive Control for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles) aimed at developing, implementing and testing advanced cognitive systems for coordination and cooperative control of multiple AUVs.
He was involved in a National Interest Research Project (PRIN 2009) “ROCOCO Collaborative Cooperative Robotics” and is involved in two projects funded by the European Commission (ECHORD, EUROC).
He is Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and of the Italian Society of Professors and Researches of Automatic Control (SIDRA).
