Personal profile

Professional Information

I am a Lecturer-Researcher at the Institute of Engineering, where I work on applied research projects as a member of the Sensors and Smart Systems research group. As lecturer, I teach courses related to Robotics and Electronics for the Electrical and Electronics Engineering program, and Research Skills for the Master Smart Systems Engineering program.

My background is in Electrical Engineering (BSc, MSc and PhD). Before joining academia, I worked as an engineer for 4 years with design and maintenance of industrial automation machines. During my master’s, I worked with control of electric drives to use a three-phase induction motor as a generator. In my doctorate, I worked with non-linear control and dynamic compensation for wheeled mobile robots.

For more than 10 years I was involved with educational robotics, also as member of Technical and Organizing Committees of robotics competitions, such as RoboCup Junior Soccer. Currently, I am serving as guest-editor of the joint special issue "Smart Robotics for Automation" for the journals Sensors and Automation, from MDPI.
