Jorge Pomares (Prof. Dr.) obtained the degree of Computer Engineer and the PhD at the University of Alicante. He belongs to the Department of Physics, Systems Engineering and Signal Theory at the University of Alicante since 2003. Since December 2017 he is Full Professor in the aforementioned department in the area of systems engineering and automatics, being founder of the Human Robotics research group. His research career has focused on the field of robotics, visual servoing for guiding robots, space robotics, robot control and manipulation.

Within these fields he has participated in more than 15 research projects. The projects he has led are within the scope of robot guidance by vision, visual servoing and control of assistive robotics. These projects have allowed not only the development of robot guidance strategies but also the design of new approaches for the control of robotic systems. In addition, he has worked on the design of new strategies for guiding robots of different characteristics: robot manipulators, robotic hands, mobile robots, mobile manipulators, space robots, exoskeletons, etc. Within this field he is author of more than 40 JCR articles and more than 100 contributions to national and international conferences.

Throughout his research career he has collaborated with more than ten national and international research groups in the field of robotics, robot control systems and space robotics. Regarding collaborations with foreign research groups, it is worth mentioning that during the last years he has been collaborating with the Institute of Industrial Systems of Greece, the University of Lulea and the Centre for Autonomous and Cyberphysical Systems, in the University of Cranfield. These collaborations have been focused on the development of new methods of nonlinear control and filtering for robotic applications. This research has aimed at solving control, estimation and filtering problems in advanced models of robotic manipulators and vehicles. The methods which have been developed are generic and applicable to a wide range of robotic systems. The control methods developed have been addressed to the following types of robots: multi-DOF rigid-link robots, manipulators subject to input/output delays, underactuated robots and redundant manipulators, closed-chain robotic systems, exoskeletons, flexible-link robots and space robotics. Additionally, he is collaborating with the Centre for Autonomous and Cyberphysical Systems, in the University of Cranfield, within the research field of space robotics.
