"El menesteroso de una ciencia, el que siente la profunda necesidad de la verdad, se acercará cauteloso al saber ya hecho, lleno de suspicacias, sometiéndolo a crítica; más bien con el prejuicio de que no es verdad lo que el libro sostiene; en suma, precisamente porque necesita un saber con radical angustia, pensará que no lo hay y procurará deshacer el que se presenta como ya hecho. Hombres así son los que constantemente corrigen, renuevan, recrean la ciencia.".

(The devoted to a science, the one who feels deep need of truth, will approach with caution to any previously built knowledge, full of suspicion, subjecting it to review... with the doubt that is not true what the book argues. In fact, because he really needs knowledge he will never accept outside conclusions and will dismount any built knowledge to the root. Such people is the one that continuously correct, renew and upgrade the science)

Current Activity

Currently I am doing the PhD at University of Tsukuba and collaborating with AIST in developing some of my projects, related to mechanical design for inspection and service robots.

Engineering and R&D experience

I graduated at University of Seville as M.Eng. (Automatic and Electronic Systems Engineering). I also worked full time at the Robotics Research Laboratory (GRVC) to pay for my studies. After graduation, I kept working with them as a R&D engineer for few more years. My work with them resulted in my first patent: an inspection device for exchange chambers of power plants (Projects & Designs).

Later on I moved to Austria to work as a Mechanical Design Engineer for an aeronautical company (FACC). The job was challenging and very interesting: designing mechanisms and furniture for business jets. I was recognised as an outstanding mechanical designer (in less than one year I was a design reference at my department), but after little more than one year I decided to move to Japan, that was my dream since I was a child.

I worked for a wearables start-up in Tokyo (16Lab) as Vice-President of Engineering. The company was developing a Smart Ring and my task was creating methods and algorithms for defining the interactions with the ring. I signed 5 patents during those two years (Projects & Designs). Additionally, we won the Innovation Award at CEATEC Japan 2015 (Home Entertainment category).

In parallel to my job positions in Austria and Japan, I kept developing by myself some designs for inspection robots (that was my research subject at GRVC and my graduation thesis). Once the Smart Ring at 16Lab was fully developed, I resigned from my position to develop an inspection robot by myself. I went back to Spain and tried to patent it, but I failed. Then I decided to join Kim Laboratory at Iwate University, where I was able to continue developing my designs in parallel to my official research project, that was a forestry robot. The forestry robot was a success and I had the opportunity to improve my designs and apply for two new patents (currently under development).

A few years later, Kim sensei started a new company in Korea and his laboratory at Iwate University closed. As I just got married and my wife was pregnant, we decided to stay in Iwate with her family. I kept working on my projects and additionally, with my wife, we had a Robot School for children. Three years later, we moved to Tsukuba where I am doing my PhD and collaborating with AIST to develop my designs and other projects.
