Dr. Ing. Michele Folgheraiter received the degrees of MSc in Information Engineering with major in Industrial Automation Systems and the PhD in Information Technology from Politecnico di Milano University (Italy), in 2000 and 2004  respectively.
His research interests focus on the areas of humanoid robotics, haptic interfaces, bio-inspired control systems and artificial limbs. He is author of more than 50 scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences. He is regularly reviewing papers for international journals as the Journal of Humanoid Robotics, Mechatronics (Elsevier), Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering Journal, IEEE Biomedical Engineering Journal, IEEE Transaction on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics. He is also reviewing papers on a regular basis for international Conferences such as ICRA, IROS, ICINCO, ROMAN, ROBOCUP. He was invited as a session chair for the ROBIO, ICICNO, BIODEVICES, and AIM conferences respectively in 2006&2014, 2010,  2011 and 2017.
In 2002, he was awarded a scholarship for an international research program and spent three months at the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory in Portland State University, Oregon, USA. In 2003 he became a member of the Italian Engineering Association. From 2002 to 2007 he held the positions as researcher and teaching assistant in Robotics  classes at Politecnico di Milano. From 2004 to 2006 he held the position as an adjunct professor for the  “Informatica B” class and participated in a EU funded  project  within FP6 (ION-Project). 
Between  2000 and 2007 he supervised more than 30 M.S. and B.S thesis and guided different robotics projects at the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory (AIRLAB) in Politecnico di Milano.
From 2007 to 2013 he held the position as senior researcher at the DFKI Bremen Robotics Innovation Center. Since the end of 2013 he joined the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at Nazarbayev University as associate professor.
