Adrián was born in Málaga (Spain) in 1991. He received a BEng in Industrial Engineering from the University of Seville in 2014. During his BEng he undertook two specialisations; one on Automation and Robotics and another on Electronics.
While he was doing the 5th year of his degree he worked as a research assistant for the department of System and Automation. He researched the field of computer vision and wind forecasting and wrote his thesis supervised by Prof. Teodoro Álamo Cantarero about convex optimization algorithms apply to MPC for tracking.
Adrián is undertaking a PhD in Heriot Watt University as part of the CDT in Embedded Intelligence.
The PhD project, sponsored by Moredun Ltd, is entitled “Smart sensors for detection of lack of appetite in cattle”. This project proposes to design, manufacture and test a smart sensor to be inserted in the collar or any other judicious places of cattle to detect the absence or reduction of mastication as a clinical sign of symptom of disease.
The project is supervised by Dr Paul Record at Heriot Watt university.
