Alessandro Macchelli was born in Bologna on the 1st of Genuary 1975. He took his Laurea Degree cum laude at the University of Bologna on the 16th of February 2000, with a sperimental master thesis, developed at L.A.R., the Laboratory of Automation and Robotics in the field of the VIDET Project (see: http://www-lar.deis.unibo.it/activities/videt/), titled Control of a Robotic Interface for the Interaction with Virtual Reality. On December 2000, he took the professional degree. On May 2000, he began his PhD (XV cycle) and so his research activity within D.E.I.S. under the supervision of prof. Claudio Melchiorri. His research activity is in the field of robotics and control in general, from both a pratical and theorical point of view. After the laurea degree, he continued to work on haptic interfaces within the VIDET Project and on real-time operating systems, in particular RTAI-Linux and QNX. With the foundamental help of some under-graduated student, he implemented some algorithms using real-time linux for the control of electrical motors and industrial manipulators, Comau SMART 3-S in particular. From a more theorical point of view, he is interested in the passive control of dynamical systems, in particular using the Port Controlled Hamiltonian System (PCHS) approach, in the control of system with delay and in the sliding-mode control of dynamical systems.
