Curriculum Vitae
Francesco Marinello got MS degree (110/110) in Mechanical Engineering, from University of Padova (Italy) in 2003.
In 2003 had a 6 months scholarship at the Department of Electronic Engineering (University of Padova).
From 2004 to 2007 had doctorate in Manufacturing Engineering in joint supervision with the Univ. of Padova and the Techn. Univ. of Denmark (DTU). The final thesis was awarded with the first prize at the Regional Prize for Innovation 2007.
In 2007 has been Visiting Assistant Professor at IPL (DTU), in connection with the EU-project “Universal and Flexible 3D Coordinate Metrology and Nano Components Production”.
From 2007 to 2011 had a four years research fellowship at the Department of Manufacturing Engineering and Management (Univ. of Padova) for a project of project on metrology and development of standards for thin films characterization), in collaboration with Veneto Interuniversity Centre for Nanotechnology (CIVEN).
In 2011-2012 has been working in a private company (Metersit srl) as metrology responsible.
Since 2012 is researcher at the University of Padova, in the field of agricultural mechanics, and adjuncted professor with two courses on agricultural mechanics and applied statistics.
Since 2004, is reviewer for important international journals (Nanotechnology, Measurement Science and Technology).
The scientific background has grown up at a national and international level, with active involvement in projects, in collaboration with other university and industrial research centres.
Research activities can be divided into three main scientific lines:
- development and testing of new sensors allowing advanced data collection (including monitoring of soil, plants and machines) and enhancement of agricultural practices;
- study, modeling and testing of agricultural tools and machines;
- implementation and testing of innovative materials allowing enhancement of agricultural tools performance.
Research activities are carried out in collaboration with national as well as international companies operating in the field of agriculture, as for instance Forigo roteritalia, Topcon, Agrex, etc.
Francesco Marinello is author and co-author of 4 patents and more than 100 papers published in journals or presented at national and international conferences (H-index 15).
Research activity has been awarded with several prizes as the Alan Glanvill Award in 2013 and the Regional Prize for Innovation, in 2007.
