Giovanni Berselli

Giovanni Berselli, UniGe professor of Industrial Engineering Design and Methods, has been elected Fellow of the ASME - American Society of Mechanical Engineers for "relevant contributions in the design of highly dexterous robotic hands and safe mechatronic devices for human/robot iteration."

The nomination was sponsored by Bruno Siciliano, professor at the University of Naples Federico II, and Larry Howell, professor at Brigham Young University, USA.

To date, Giovanni Berselli is one of only 10 fellows in Italy (and 3500 worldwide). The ASME Past Presidents Committee confers the rank of Fellow to deserving candidates to recognize their outstanding achievements in the engineering sciences.

Founded in 1880, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a nonprofit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development in all disciplines of engineering. ASME's codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education, and professional development programs provide the foundation for advancing engineering knowledge in a safer world.
