Welcome / Bienvenid@

Welcome to my blog.

My name is Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. I am assistant professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). I got a PhD in Automation and Robotics (2014-2018), Bsc+MSc in Industrial Engineering (2006-2012) and MSc in Automation and Robotics (2013-2014) from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). I did a postdoc at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), I took part in robotics projects with SENER and Airbus, and I performed a research stay at the University of Luxembourg. During the last years, I have researched about robotics, robotics applied to agriculture, adaptive & immersive interfaces, artificial intelligence, and virtual & augmented reality.

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

Until next time!

My talk at the Retiro park

Today, I have done my talk "How to train your robot" at the Eugenio Trías library (also known as Casa de Fieras) at the Retiro park in Madrid. In this iconic place, I presented my works in robotics applied to agriculture, adaptive and immersive interfaces, robot swarms, and robot learning to a general audience. It was a very nice surprise to meet such a diverse public interested in my research. These things help me to keep working hard at this difficult time in my life. I want to thank the Unidad de Cultura Científica of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid for the invitation.

I'm on the radio!

Hey man, look at me rockin' out, I'm on the radio! Today, I have been invited to talk about my research on robot learning on the Onda Cero Madrid Norte radio. I want to thank Iván Narváez from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Sonia Crespo from Onda Cero Madrid Norte for this opportunity. Here you can see the video of the interview:
