I am a researcher in the field of dynamics and control systems. I was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. I received the B.Sc. degree (with honors) in electronic engineering from Technological Institute of Oaxaca, Mexico in 1999, the M.Sc. degree (with honors) from the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada (CICESE) in 2001, and the Docteur Ingenieur degree from Université de Paris Sud-11, Orsay, France in 2006.
I was a graduate scholar visitor at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Twente in 2004. From July 2006 until December 2007 I held a postdoctoral position at Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes, Gif-sur-Yvette, France. In 2008, I joined the Department Discrete Technology and Production Automation at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. From January 2009 to December 2010, I was with the Control System Technology group at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. As of the 1st of August 2011 I am with the Computer Sciences School, Faculty of Sciences at University of Baja California, Campus Ensenada.
I was student member of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) until 2006, I have been Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) since 2000 and Affiliate Member of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) since 2009. I participate in the IEEE Technical Committee on Haptics and the Eurohaptics Society. I am also Member (Level 1) of the National System of Researchers of the National Mexican Science Council (CONACYT).
My research insterests include nonlinear control theory, modeling, analysis and control of physical systems, mechatronic systems. Currently I am focused in the modeling, analysis and control of energy cogeneration systems, for instance, Stirling engines and their application to micro combined heat and power units (micro CHP). I am also working on robotics and educational haptics.
