Research area

My research focuses on developing and applying state of the art techniques in Artificial Intelligence to strategic domain such as Robotics, Energy Management or Cybersecurity.

Recent results

In collaboration with the Intelligent System Group we have applied state of the art techniques in Machine Learning to perform real-time monitoring of the system’s mechanical condition in Spanish Navy ships to predict when components will fail. It is the first time predictive maintenance is being used in military equipment.

We are also applying state of the art techniques on Deep Learning to predict geomagnetic indices (they measure when geomagnetic storms can occur, being responsible of failures in satellite communication or power grids) or predict energy consumption patterns.

Finally, we are developing cooperative planning techniques to advance in heuristic search planning algorithms for multi-robotic platforms.
