He got MS in Computer Science from the University of Málaga in 1990. By means of a research fellowship he joined the Research Group of Systems Engineering and Automation of that university, where he began his research in 1991 on the problem of mobile robots navigation. In 1995 he obtained a PhD and he is currently Full Professor on System Engineering. He has participated in both national (as leader) and European resarch projects about ICT. In 1997, he started to research on the application of robots in surgery; founding, in 1998, the Medical Robotics Research Group of the Universidad de Málaga.
