Short biography: 

Raúl Marín received a B.Sc. degree in computer science engineering (1996) and a Ph.D. in Engineering (2002) by the Jaume I University of Castellon (Spain). The subject of his Ph.D. was the development of a vision-based telerobotic system via web, by using object and speech recognition, 3D virtual environments, grasping determination, and augmented reality. In 1996 he worked in the Multimedia department of BYG Systems Ltd, Nottingham (UK), as a software developer. In 1997, he joined Lucent Technologies (Bell Labs Innovations) and worked as researcher, software developer and software architect at the Switching and Access Division. In 1999 he began to teach and research as professor at the Jaume I University. Now, he is associate professor at the Department of Computer Science of the Jaume-I University (Spain) and lectures Computer Networking, and Robotics in the same university. His research interests lie mainly in Field robotics,  Rescue and Underwater, including subjects such as Localization, Networks of Sensors and Actuators, Object Recognition, Internet Telerobotics, and Education. He is author or co-author of multiple research publications on these subjects. He has participated in several research projects such as FP6 GUARDIANS (Group of unmanned assistant robots deployed in aggregative navigation supported by scent detection), and now is involved in the FP7 TRIDENT project (Marine robots and dexterous manipulation for enabling autonomous underwater multipurpose intervention missions).
