He was Professor of Production Engineering at Politecnico di Torino 1972–2010, emeritus since 2011. Academic positions include Head of Department of Production Systems and Economics, Member of the Board and of the Senate, Vice Rector, and Coordinator of the Ph.D. program on “Metrology – Measurement Science and Technology.” He was formerly Chairman of the Scientific Council of Istituto di Tecnologie Industriali ed Automazione - CNR, Milano, and of Istituto di Metrologia “Gustavo Colonnetti” - CNR, Torino, and is aMember of AITEM - Associazione Italiana di Tecnologia Meccanica, ENBIS - European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics, SIS - Società Italiana di Statistica; Life Member of ASME - American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Senior Member of ASQ - American Society for Quality, and Honorary Fellow of CIRP - International Academy for Production Engineering, Research Associate at Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI, and Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA; Lady Davis Visiting Professor at Technion - IIT, Haifa, Israel. Research and teaching activities include covering applied statistics, experimental mechanics, machine design, metrology, production engineering and quality, all of which are described in five books and over one hundred and seventy published papers.

Steven J. Skerlos Ph.D., is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and Associate Chair of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He also holds a faculty appointment in Civil and Environmental Engineering and is Director of the Program in Sustainable Engineering. He earned a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering with Highest Honors from the University of Illinois. Professor Skerlos is a researcher in the fields of sustainable design, sustainable manufacturing, sustainable water systems, and technology policy. He has co-authored over 80 publications in refereed journals and conference proceedings and has co-founded two start-up companies based upon research in the area of metalworking fluids, the first of which was valued at over $200 million. His metalworking fluids research has led to improved understanding of their environmental impact as well as to novel formulations, recycling methods, and performance testing methods. He has served as Associate and Guest Editor for four different journals in design, manufacturing, and environmental technology. He was awarded the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2000 and the College of Engineering Education Excellence Award in 2006.
