About me

Electronic engineer entrepreneur, self-taught, responsible, creative and goal-oriented. He received his BSc. degree in electronic engineering. He is candidate to earn his MSc. in control engineering at the university of Ibague, Colombia, where he is currently a professor in the faculty of engineering. This MSc. program in control engineering has been created as a result of a fruitful academic cooperation between the university of ibaguè, the Catholic University of Leuven “KULeuven” and the University of ghent UGent “UGent” in Belgium.

He worked for a company called “Ideas Disruptivas” in Mexico, where as a project manager he helped develop the first Mexican 3D printer, with a clear educational purpose. The most outstanding project I have worked for, is called “pretty hand”, where a mechanical-electronic hand was designed for people needing hand prosthesis; it was a low-cost social project. He is currently chair of IEEE student branch chapter and chair industrial application society at the university of Ibague. His current research topics include power electronics, robustness and advanced control, renewable energy systems, where he has written several papers. He is fond of robotic systems.

Finalist MathWorks Minidrone Competition

The MathWorks Minidrone Competitions pretended to introduce participants into Model-Based Design using Simulink. The participants had to design a line follower algorithm for a minidrone. The competition consisted of two rounds. Teams that passed from Round 1 were invited to participate in Round 2. This competition was hosted by MathWorks.

  • Round 1 Simulation: Design of virtual algorithms by using Simulink.
  • Round 2 Simulation and Hardware Deployment: Deployment of the algorithm designed in round 1, on a Parrot minidrone.
