"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)

Looking for Challenges

I am looking for a Job or Research position in Japan. It must be a challenging opportunity, something that requires my skills and keep me thinking under the shower. Something that makes me feel proud of our contribution to society. Something that gives me the satisfaction of solving dificult problems.

I am also looking for collaborations with companies that would be interested in developing my projects or partners interested in starting our own business for robotic design.

Engineering and R&D experience

I studied a bachelor degree on Industrial Engineering and a master on Automatic and Electronic Systems Engineering at the University of Seville. During the last years of my studies, I worked as intern for the Robotics and Computer Vision Laboratory (GRVC). After finishing my studies I kept working with them and as R&D engineer for few more years.

After that I moved to Austria to work as a mechanical design engineer for an aeronautical company. The job was challenging and very interesting: designing mechanisms and furniture for business jets. I was recognised as an outstanding mechanical designer and I became a design reference at my department, but the company was located at a small village in the mountains and I had no perspective of personal or social growth (it was impossible to find a girlfriend over there), so I decided to move on.

I moved to Tokyo to work for 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 my time with them (available at the Inventions section of this website) and we won the Innovation Award at CEATEC Japan 2015 (Home Entertainment category).

Once the product was fully developed, as the company was focusing on marketing and fundraising stages, I resigned of my position at 16Lab to develop some mechanical designs that were in my mind for several years. I joined Kim Laboratory at Iwate University, where I worked as a full time researcher. My main task was to research about automated tree-felling tools, but in parallel I developed some of my ideas and applied for two patents (Human-Friendly Joint and gearbox).

Few years later Kim sensei started a new company in Korea and his laboratory at Iwate University closed. I decided to stay in Iwate where, with my wife, we teach robotics to children and keep developing my designs.
