Reseach area: 

His current research interests are underwater robotics, humanoids robots, web development and all related to new technologies.
His current work is related to the Graphical User Interface (GUI), which will be used in underwater robotic projects coordinated at the IRS-Lab. The GUI first version has been developed using C# and EmguCV (a OpenCV wrapper) and has been developed focusing on the user experience, so all its functions tends to be user-friendly as much as possible. More information about this work can be found in this section and in his contributions. This is a screenshot:
