Domenico achieved is Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering on February 2005 at the University of Calabria with a dissertation on Finite element analysis of machining processes: innovative experimental techniques for results assessing. From Jan. 2005 to Oct. 2014, Domenico was tenured as Assistant Professor in Manufacturing at the Department of Mechanical (University of Calabria). From May 2008 to Sept. 2012, Domenico was also invited several times as Visiting Professor in the Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing, University of Kentucky (USA). From Nov. 2014, Domenico is Associate Professor in Manufacturing at the Department of Mechanical, Energy and Management Engineering, (University of Calabria). Domenico was awarded with the 2011 F.W. Taylor Medal of CIRP, the 2011 ESAFORM Scientific Prize and the 2005 AITEM Outstanding Young Manufacturing Research Award.
