Short bio

I was born in Linares (Jaén, Spain) in 1981, and received the BSc. degree in Technical Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Jaén in 2002. Then I moved to Málaga and received the MSc. degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Málaga in 2007.

In late 2008, I received a FPU grant from the Spanish administration to perform my PhD in the University of Málaga, associated to the Machine Perception and Intelligent Robotics group of the Department of System Engineering and Automation (ISA).

I received the PhD. degree in 2015 with my work Stereo Visual SLAM for Mobile Robots Navigation under the supervision of Prof. Javier González and Dr. José-Luis Blanco.

Since 2017 I teach different subjects within the ISA deparment, including Perception Systems, Robotic Systems, Industrial Automation and Computer Integrated Manufacturing.

In 2023 I obtained a permanent position as Associate Professor in the University of Malaga.

My research interests include:

  • Computer vision.
    • Stereo vision.
    • Visual odometry and SLAM.
    • Global descriptors.
  • Mobile robotics.
    • Localization and mapping.
    • Telepresence robotics.
    • Human-machine interaction.


I teach these subjects at the University of Málaga (in Spanish)

  1. Sistemas Robotizados (GITI)
  2. Automatización Industrial (GIEI & GIERM)
  3. Sistemas Integrados de Fabricación (MII)
  4. Sistemas de Percepción (MIM)
