Prof. Dr.-Ing. Paolo Mercorelli

Leuphana University of Lueneburg, Germany


Talk: Soft Optimal Computing Techniques to Identify and Control Surface Roughness in Manufacturing


Paolo Mercorelli received the M.S. degree (Laurea) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 1998. In 1997, he was a Visiting Researcher for one year in the Department of Mechanical and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA. He was awarded by the Marie Curie Actions research fellowship program sponsored by The European Commission in year 1998 which he spent in ABB (Asea Brown Boveri) Corporate Research, Heidelberg.

The Marie Curie Actions research fellowship program is a set of mobility research grant schemes funding pre- and post-doctoral researchers in Europe as well as experienced researchers from all over the world. The Marie-Curie Fellowships are Europe’s most competitive and prestigious awards, and are aimed at fostering interdisciplinary research and international collaborations. Thanks to this scholarship, from 1998 to 2001, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher with ABB (Asea Brown Boveri) Corporate Research, Heidelberg, Germany. From 2002 to 2005, he was a Senior Researcher with the Institute of Automation and Informatics, Wernigerode, Germany, where he was the Leader of the Control Group.
