He is currently teaching at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería y Diseño Industrial (ETSIDI-UPM), and researching as a member of the Center for Automation and Robotics (CAR UPM-CSIC).

He has done several research stages in Norway (NTNU, 2000), USA (University of Hawaii, 2002), Switzerland (EPFL, 2005) and United Arab Emirates (New York University Abu Dhabi, 2012).

His main research activities are related to robotics and smart environments (ambient intelligence and ambient assisted living), where he has worked on several national and European R&D projects as Researcher and Project Manager in the ICT and Robotics fields: Sauvim, Microtub, Spot, Micromult, Pisa, Thofu, Siglas, LabXXI, Hephestos, RoboHealth. He is especially interested in the Internet of Things and the new possibilities it can bring to home automation. He has published more than 20 papers in related journals and conferences.

In the past, he has been Technical Manager at the Research Center for Smart Buildings and Energy Efficiency (CeDInt-UPM) and Visiting Professor in the Department of System Engineering and Automation at the Carlos III University (Spain), where he has started a Building Automation Lab.

In this field he has worked for the SME AtelMedia, leading the home automation department, where he has acquired a deep knowledge of the situation of home and building automation in Spain. He has also worked for the Spanish SME AMETIC as an R&D Consultant.

From January 2012 he has been collaborating with the Fundación Alzheimer España as an advisor in ICT affaires, and as a coordinator of the working group on home automation for Alzheimer patients “DomAlz”. The goal of this research is to use IoT to lower the caregiver’s burden and facilitate as much as possible Alzheimer patient’s life at home. In 2016 he has won the price “ABC Solidario 2016” for a project about a fall detection system for elderly homes.
