Robert Daniello assists the firm in patent prosecution in areas related to mechanical technologies. With a background in mechanical engineering and thermo-fluid systems, Robert utilizes his technical experience when working with clients.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Robert was on the faculty at Worcester Polytechnic Institute teaching courses in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, materials, and internal combustion engines.

In addition, Robert has worked as a senior thermodynamic systems engineer, where he

conducted thermodynamic analysis and system architecture trade studies of environmental control and inert gas generating systems for large commercial aircraft.

Robert completed his PhD at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His graduate research involved experimental studies on the effect of superhydrophobic surfaces on fluid flow.
