I am a Ph.D. student of Computer Science and Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) focused on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. In 2013 I obtained the bachelor's degree from this university, although I finished the bachelor's thesis in Germany at Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT). It required to modify path planning and fuzzy logic algorithms to improve the human-robot cooperation of an industrial robotic arm. In 2014 I finished the master's thesis at UC3M, which consisted in the development of the control architecture of a social robot and a 3D sensor to drive rehabilitation sessions for children with upper-limb impairments. This work became into the NAOTherapist project, which is part of my current research for the Ph.D. It evolved into a personal entrepreneurship project which gained several recognitions like a National Geographic documentary or a prize of the Santander Yuzz 2016 competition, among others. In 2017, I was a visitor scholar in the United States in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), working with Dr. Manuela M. Veloso. My current research interests include control architectures for Autonomous Robotics, Automated Planning and Machine Learning techniques.
