The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid is the university in which I develop my research and teaching activities. The lectures and seminars are given in the School of Computer Science (three years long degree) and Faculty of Computer Science (five years long, master and doctorate degrees). Therefore, I am belonged to two departments: Applied Intelligent Systems (School) and Artificial Intelligence (Faculty).

Computational Cognitive Robotics, my research group. Our main research interest are in the areas of Robotics and Computer Vision. Our work has been applied to vehicle detection and tracking, automated car parking, autonomous and unconventional robots. Currently we are developing fundamental and applied research work on symbolic and language-like communication in robot teams.
