Ester Martinez-Martin is Tenured Professor at University of Alicante and Director Assistant of the University Institute for Computing Research (IUII) at the same university. She holds a B.S. in Computer Science Engineering (2004), a Master's degree in Mobile and Video Games Programming (2017), a Master's degree for Secondary Education, Vocational Training and Language Teaching (2011), and a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering (2011), all of them from the Jaume-I University.
Her research is focused on the development of vision systems for robotic tasks and, more specifically, on assistive robotics aimed at promoting the autonomy and independence of the elderly and/or people with functional diversity, guaranteeing their safety and dignity. She has participated in several regional, national, and European projects related to the previously mentioned lines of research, as a main researcher in one regional project. As a result, she has published 20 JCR-indexed articles as well as 5 articles in non-JCR-indexed journals (scopus-indexed), a research book (Springer), several book chapters, three research books (as a co-editor), and more than 25 articles in congresses, both national and international. She is currently supervising 3 PhD theses.
The relevance in the research area has led her to be awarded with the MUY Young Scientists Award (2019) (without public call), Impulse Award (2019), New Business Ideas Award (2019), the Young Researchers Award in the field of engineering and architecture (2015) and the PAAMS Award of Scientific Excellence (2012 and 2013). She has also given invited lectures at prestigious international centers (German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Universidade do Minho) and conferences (IEEE SWYP19: Students, Women in Engineering and Young Professionals).
She has also done 4 research stays in prestigious foreign centers with a total duration of 18 months: Università degli Studi di Genova (Pr. Silvio Sabatini), SungKyunKwan University (Pr. Suthan Lee), Universidade do Minho (Pr. Paulo Novais) and the Technische Universitat (TU) Wien (Pr. Markus Vincze), all of which are financed in competitive public calls. In addition, she has been the Organization Chair for IEEE-RAS Summer School on Experimental Methodology, Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking in Robotics (2015), 13th International conference on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior (SAB 2014), 12th International AERFAI/UJI Robotics School on Perceptual Robotics for Humanoids (IURS 2012). She was also co-organizer of some tutorials in international conferences (HRI, 2017; ICINCO, 2014; IAS-13, 2014; IEEE RO-MAN, 2013). She has been member of the programme committee and organization committee in several national and international conferences. She is senior member of IEEE.
