Domenico Campolo is currently Associate Professor at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Director of the Robotics Research Centre, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He received his Laurea Degree (1998) in Electronics Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, his Diploma Degree (1999) in Engineering and his PhD (2002) in Micro-Engineering from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa. In 2000–2003, he was at UC Berkeley (USA). In 2003–2009, he worked at Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome (Italy). In 2009, he joined NTU as Assistant Professor.
He is co-inventor in several Technology Disclosures and Patents. He is co-founder of ArtiCares Pte Ltd, an NTU spinoff company focusing on Robotic Technologies for decentralized healthcare, including homes.
My research interests hinge around the understanding of the mechanisms behind human and animal skills, also for possible transfer to robotic platforms. To this end, I have been focusing on the development of Robotic platforms for Neuroscience, especially in relation to the sensorimotor domain and human-robot physical interaction; Mechatronic technologies with application to Neuro-Developmental Engineering; Biomimetic Robotics including development of biologically inspired actuators and sensors. My theoretical investigations for both Robotics and Computational Neuroscience are characterized by a geometric approach.
