Welcome / Bienvenid@


Welcome to my blog.

My name is Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Automation and Robotics (UPM-CSIC). I got a PhD in Automation and Robotics from the Technical University of Madrid (2014-2018). Previously, I studied Bsc+MSc in Industrial Engineering with specialization in Automation and Electronics (2006-2012) and MSc in Automation and Robotics (2013-2014) at the same university. I have taken part in robotics projects with SENER and Airbus Defence and Space, as well as I have performed a research stay at the University of Luxembourg. During the last five years, I have researched about security systems for aerial robots, surveillance with teams of ground robots and application of robots to agriculture. Currently, I am interested in multi-robot adaptive and immersive interfaces and robot swarms for monitoring cities, as well as in data mining and machine learning techniques.

If you are interested in my work, please send me an email:


Until next time!

Bienvenid@ a mi blog.

Mi nombre es Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. Soy un investigador postdoctoral en el Centro de Automática y Robótica (UPM-CSIC). Hice el doctorado en Automática y Robótica en la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (2014-2018). Anteriormente, estudié Ingeniería Industrial con especialidad en Automática y Electrónica (2006-2012) y Máster en Automática y Robótica (2013-2014) en la misma universidad. He participado en proyectos de robótica con SENER y Airbus Defence & Space y también he realizado una estancia de investigación en la Universidad de Luxemburgo. Durante los últimos cinco años, he investigado sobre sistemas de seguridad para robots aéreos, vigilancia con equipos de robots terrestres y aplicación de robots en agricultura. Actualmente, estoy interesado en las interfaces adaptativas e inmersivas para flotas de robots y el uso de enjambres de robots para monitorizar ciudades, así como en aprender más sobre técnicas de minería de datos y aprendizaje automático.

Award for the best PhD thesis in Robotics of Spain!

I have been honored with the award for the best PhD thesis in Robotics of Spain!


This prize have been organized by the Spanish Automation Committee (Comité Español de Automática, CEA) for the last decades and this time have been funded by the company Robotnik. Eleven researchers from different universities of Spain presented their PhD thesis to the contest. After a first round of revisions carried out by a group of experts, three of them were invited to present their thesis in the final round. We attended to the Spanish Automation Conference (Jornadas de Automática) that took place in Ferrol (Galicia), where we presented our thesis and another group of experts decided the winner.


I cannot find the words that describe how satisfied I feel. Since I finished my PhD the last summer, I have been through bad times and I have doubted about by future. I hope this award can be an incentive to continue fighting in this hard world.
