I am a Ph.D. student of Computer Science and Engineering at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). In 2013 I obtained the bachelor's degree from this university, although I finished the bachelor's thesis at the 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 the UC3M, which consisted on the development of the architecture of a social robot and a 3D sensor to drive rehabilitation sessions for children with motor impairments in their upper limbs. This work became into the NAOTherapist project, which in 2016 won the third prize of the Santander Yuzz spanish national entrepreneurship competition and it is part of my current research for the Ph.D. My research interests include control architectures for Social Robotics, Automated Planning and Machine Learning techniques.

Automated Planning & Robotics: NAOTherapist, Autonomous Social Robotics for Rehabilitation.

Automated Planning & Robotics: It focuses on the development of Clarc, a mobile robot designed to assist geriatric patients during Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) procedures. These procedures consist of several tests heavily based on speech and physical postures. The robot guides the patient to perform the tests and gather clinical measures for the clinician. European research project FP7-ICT-601116.

Automated Planning & Robotics: Ursus is a humanoid robot with bear form which helps in neuro-rehabilitation therapies for children with cerebral palsy. The main goal of this project is to provide this robot with enough autonomy to supervise the exercises of each therapeutic session and improve its social interaction with the patients. Spanish research project TIN2012-38079.

Automated Planning & Robotics: A social robot called Gualzru has to attract people walking in a certain area of an airport or shopping center to show them an adapted promotion depending on detected characteristics of each person, like gender or age.
