Giuseppe Di Gironimo
is researcher in Design and Methods of Industrial Engineering at the
University of Naples Federico II.
Having graduated (cum laude) in
Mechanical Engineering (1999), he received the Ph.D. in Mechanical
Design (2002). In 2001/2002, during his Ph. D. studies, he worked at
the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Darmastadt (Germany).
He is referee of well-known scientific journals and conferences.
is author of about 100 scientific papers as result of research
activities covering the area of Geometric Modelling, Rapid
Prototyping, Digital Mock Up, Virtual Reality (VR), Ergonomics
Design, Maintainability Design, Assembly/Disassembly Design,
Mechanical Design, Product Innovation, Concept Design, Tolerance
Design and Robust Design, Fusion Engineering Design.
He is the
designer and the responsible of the Virtual Reality Laboratory “VRTEst”,
realized for the Center of Competence for Transport Systems of the
Campania Region and of the Center “IDEAinVR” (Interactive Design and
Ergonomics Applications in VR) of the University of Naples Federico
He is the responsible of Mechanical Design and Virtual Reality
division at CREATE Consortium. He collaborates with Association
EURATOM-ENEA (CREATE) on the Fusion Engineering and Design and, in
particular, on Tokamak machines(FAST, ITER and DEMO) conceptual
study in Virtual Reality and related Remote Handling issues.
teaches Mechanical Drawing and Computer Aided Design, for the
courses in Industrial Engineering, and Automotive Ergonomics for the
Master in Automotive Engineering. He has coordinated several
research programs with Italian and European firms and research
centers (CEA LIST Cadarache, VTT Tampere, Fraunhofer Institute for
