Gursel Alici received the Ph.D. degree in robotics from the Department of Engineering Science, Oxford University, Oxford, U.K., in 1994.
He is currently a Professor at the University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia, where he is the Head of the School of Mechanical, Materials and Mechatronic Engineering. His current research interests are soft robotics, system dynamics and control, robotic drug delivery systems, novel actuation concepts for biomechatronic applications, robotic mechanisms and manipulation systems, soft and smart actuators and sensors, and medical robotics. He has published more than 270 refereed publications in his areas of research.
Dr. Alici was a Technical Editor of the IEEE/ASME TRANSACTIONS ON MECHATRONICS during 2008-2012. He is a Technical Editor of the IEEE Access, the first IEEE open access journal with interdisciplinary scope. He is a Member of the Mechatronics National Panel formed by the Institution of Engineers, Australia. He has served on the international program committee of numerous IEEE/ASME International Conferences on Robotics and Mechatronics. He was the General Chair of the 2013 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics held in Wollongong, Australia. He is the leader of Soft Robotics for Prosthetic Devices theme of the ARC Center of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. He received the Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning Award in 2010 and the 2013 Vice-Chancellor's Interdisciplinary Research Excellence Award from the University of Wollongong.
