Dr. Rocco Lupoi

Assistant Professor (Mechanical & Manuf. Eng)
PARSONS BUILDING


Dr. Rocco Lupoi was appointed Assistant Professor within the Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering Department, Trinity College Dublin, in July 2012; the year after he was awarded of a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship. He is a mechanical engineer by background, obtaining an MEng degree from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in July 2004 over a "vecchio-ordinamento" course of studies. In the same year he was awarded of a grant for a PhD programme in the University of Bath (UK), with thesis title "Effect of shape, size and material on energy dissipation in Equal Channel Angular Extrusion". In this challenging work, he investigated the concepts and working mechanisms of a novel technology known as UREAD capable of dissipating energy in engineering systems against the occurrence of unwanted events (such as earthquakes, crashes and collisions) and with the potential of being 100% re-usable. After being awarded of a PhD degree in October 2008, he was appointed Research Associate in the Institute of Manufacturing (IfM) - Cambridge University (UK) to explore innovative melting-free material additive processes. He is a recognized expert of Cold Spray and other deposition methods, and he is one of the inventors of a new LASER-based coating technology known as "SprayLaze". He is a major contributor in the field, with high-rank publications, patents submitted and an article in a Nature Publishing Group - NPG journal. Dr. Lupoi in Trinity is exploring new manufacturing processes to include Cold Spray and Selective Laser Melting; he is the lead PI of a large research project in this topic funded by the European Space Agency. Dr. Lupoi is a Funded Investigator of AMBER and I-Form which are SFI research centres. Lectured modules within the School of Engineering are 1MEMS1 - Introduction to Manufacturing (1st year); 5MEMS2 - Advanced Manufacturing (4th year and Master level); 5MEMS1 - Advanced Manufacturing II (Master level).
