Research interest

I studied Mechatronics at the CINVESTAV in Mexico, where I received my doctorate in 2006. In 2009 I performed a postdoctoral research project in the Robotics and Embedded System Department at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

My biggest passion is everything that involves robots. My research interests include robot modeling, low level control design/implementation, sensor fusion, human-robot interaction/collaboration and cognitive systems. Since 2013 I have a position as senior researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Systems at TUM.
