Mission

Deputy Director. Research on artificial compound eyes and soft robotics

Biography

I obtained my master degree in Physics in 2000 from the University of Granada (Spain) and a PhD in Multidisciplinary Research from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) in 2006. Subsequently, I was granted with a fellowship for prospective researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation to join the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (Germany). I also worked as a research assistant at the University of Granada (Spain). Currently, I hold a postdoctoral position in LIS. My research interests are oriented towards bio-inspired robotics, soft robotics, and soft-condensed matter physics.
