I was a Professor in the School of Engineering at Universidad Politécnica Salesiana of Cuenca, Ecuador. Previously, I was a student in the Master’s Program in Robotics and Manufacturing Technology at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain. My interest in the areas of AI and robotics led me to join the Industrial Automation Institute of the Higher Scientific Research Council in Spain -now CAR-, where I completed my master thesis, focusing on the development of force virtual sensors in walking robots. I worked with Professor Pablo Gonzalez de Santos.  I was a short-term scholar at University of California, Berkeley working on Human Computer Interaction (HCI) with Pablo Paredes and Greg Niemeyer. I am currently studying a Master of Science in Computer Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. My interest is working on Human Robotics Interaction methods for creating robots that adapt their behavior based on detecting people’s emotions.
