Personal profile


I was born in Abarán, Spain, in 1978. I received the B.S. degree in Physics and the Ph. D. degree in Control Engineering from the University of Murcia, Spain, in 2004 and 2009, respectively. My dissertation was focused on Stability of Reset Control Systems, supervised by Prof. A. Baños and Prof. A. Arenas and supported by Government of Spain.

From October 2009 to September 2010, I was with the Institute of Measurement and Automatic Control, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Hanover, Germany. In October 2010, I joined the Control Systems Group, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Manchester, U.K., where I was working as research associate in absolute stability and robust antiwindup control design, under the supervision of Dr. W. Heath and Dr. A. Lanzon. Since November 2011, I am Lecturer in Control Systems.

I have been a Visiting Researcher at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, U.S., supervised by A. van der Schaft and Y. Chait, respectively.

Research interests

My research is carried out in two different fronts:

Control applications: I am working on teleoperated systems using haptic joysticks and other robotics applications in hazardous environment. I am also working in other control applications such as PLL and power systems applications.

Control theory: I am interested in absolute stability, in particular, the connections between IQC and passivity theories. The search of the multiplier is an attractive problem, which cannot be avoided in order to exploit the advantages of the multiplier theory. Teleoperation seems to be a practical application where multiplier theory can provide a different approach to classical Lyapunov methods.

  • Absolute stability
  • Control applications in Robotics
  • Nanopositioning
  • Teleoperation
