Jorge Pomares obtained the degree of Computer Engineer and the PhD at the University of Alicante in 1999 and 2004 respectively. He belongs to the Department of Physics, Systems Engineering and Signal Theory at the University of Alicante since 2003. Since December 2017 he is 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, social and assistive robotics, robot control and manipulation.

Within these fields he has participated in 16 research projects of which 9 are national (MEC-MCYT, MINECO), 7 regional (Generalitat Valencian Government) and 1 local. It has been IP in 5 (2 Ministry of Economy and competitiveness, 1 Ministry of Science and Innovation, 2 Generalitat Valenciana) awarded in competitive calls. The projects he has led are within the scope of robot guidance by vision, visual servoing and control of assistive and social robotics. These projects have allowed not only the development of robot guidance strategies but also the design and implementation of robotic systems for daily tasks assistance to people with some type of motor disability. 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, etc. Within this field He is the author of 34 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 social and assistance robotics. Regarding collaborations with foreign research groups, it is worth mentioning that during the last 5 years he has been collaborating with the Institute of Industrial Systems of Greece. The collaboration has 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. These methods are of assured stability and of proven robustness thus confirming the reliable functioning of robotic manipulators and vehicles under variable operating conditions, model uncertainty and external disturbances. The control methods developed have been addressed to the following types of robotic manipulators: multi-DOF rigid-link robots, manipulators subject to input/output delays, underactuated robots and redundant manipulators, closed-chain robotic systems, and flexible-link robots. Additionally, hi is collaborating with the Centre for Autonomous and Cyberphysical Systems, in the University of Cranfield, within the research field of space robotics.
