Short Bio

I started researching as M.Sc. student in October 2016 within the MAPIR group. I finished my Degree in Electronics, Robotics and Mechatronics in 2016 and my Master in Mechatronics in 2017, both at the University of Malaga. Since August 2018 I have a sandwich scholarship between the University of Malaga with the supervisor Prof. Javier González-Jiménez and the University of Groningen with the supervisor Prof. Nicolai Petkov to obtain a doctorate in Mechatronics.
