Michael R. P. Ragazzon
Software Engineer PhD Engineering Cybernetics

Brief Biography

Born 1989, Lørenskog, Norway.

After graduating from high school Michael R. P. Ragazzon moved to Trondheim to study Engineering Cybernetics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). In June 2013 he graduated as MSc (sivilingeniør), writing his thesis on the topic of nanopositioning in atomic force microscopy (AFM). He continued his research in AFM at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics, NTNU, and received the PhD degree in May 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Jan Tommy Gravdahl.

Over the following years, he continued his research interests into AFM as a postdoctoral researcher at NTNU. His main research directions included control theory and parameter estimation, and their application to extending the imaging capabilities of dynamic mode- and multifrequency atomic force microscopy.

Since 2023 he has been able to pursue his combined interest into software development and cutting-edge technology, by taking part in the development of human-like robotic vision as a software engineer at Zivid, Oslo, Norway.
