I am Industrial Engineer, with physics background (Germany). I also hold M. Sc. degrees in Systems Engineering and in Energy Management (Germany), and am M. Eng. in Automatic and Robotics and Ph. D. in Automatic, Robotics and Artificial Vision from the Technical University of Catalonia.

I have worked in the mining and automotive industries, basically in South America and Germany. My work experience includes systems modelling and simulation (Matlab/Simulink, Octave), automation (PLCs, fieldbuses, and instrumentation), control systems (design and implementation), embedded system , microcontrollers and FPGAs design, language programming (C, C++, Java, Pascal and Python), project management and energy efficiency (wind and solar power plants). In addition, I collaborate as reviewer in specialized journals of the IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
