"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 studied Master of Automatic and Electronic Systems Engineering at the University of Seville. During the last years of my studies, I was intern for the robotics research lab (GRVC) at the University of Seville. Later on, after finishing my studies, I was hired by them and worked as R&D engineer there 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 (in less than one year I was a design reference at my department), but the company was located in the mountains, and I was not very happy living in a small village lost in the Alps. After few more than one year, I decided to start a new stage of my life somewhere else...

I decided to move to Asia-Pacific area because I have always been interested in those cultures. My original plan was to travel for one year around the main locations (Tokyo, Seoul, Shangai, HK, Taipei and Singapore) to check by first hand where I would like to live. During my first months in Tokyo I made very good contacts, including who later became my boss at 16Lab, so when he offered me to join the team, I changed my plans to start a new stage of my life in Japan.

I worked for 16Lab for two years and a half, as Vice-President of Engineering. The company was developing a smart ring and my tasks were creating methods and algorithms for defining the interactions with the ring. I signed 5 patents during those two years (available at the Inventions section of this website). 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 new mechanical designs that were in my mind for several years. After some deliberations, I decided to join a research group at Iwate University, where I worked for two and a half year as a full time researcher. My main project was a forestry robot, but I had also time for working on my own projects related to snake arms for inspection robots.

Currently I am patenting some of my designs with Iwate University while I start my own company for mechanical design and engineering solutions.
