I am a Computer Scientist and Engineer (BEng + MSc) interested in the areas of robotics, Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Machine Learning, and with a multi-disciplinary profile.
I am currently a full-time Researcher in the Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) Hub and part of the Mixed Reality Laboratory at the University of Nottingham. Alongside this role, I am working towards completing a multi-disciplinary PhD throughout 2021.
I’m originally from Toledo, Spain, although I’ve lived in different parts of Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. Since 2016 I live in the United Kingdom.
I am working on projects involving educational robots, industrial robots and other, mainly embodied, Autonomous Systems, exploring trust in these systems, as well as designing and developing control interfaces and exploring novel ways of interaction with them, with a focus on improving their accessibility. I am also involved in the design and completion of user studies with these systems. Furthermore, I have been involved in software development and research tasks on the use of Intelligent Virtual Agents with applications in the healthcare sector.
