I obtained my Electrical and Automation degree in 2007 from Escuela Superior Politecnica del Litoral, Guayaquil-Ecuador. After 5 year of industry experience, I attended The University of Queensland to complete a Master of Engineering Science in Electrical Engineering degree. After 1 year collaborating in the public sector, I joined Escuela Superior Politecnica del Litoral as a tenure track professor and have been involved in research since.
During my work experience I developed expertise in remote monitoring and control platforms such as SCADA, DMS, automation, and CAD design for electrical engineering systems in the oil industry. I contributed to several kinds of projects including SCADA projects for electric utilities (substations integration, thermal & diesel generation implementation). I have also contributed to the public sector as planning engineer and the academia as tenure track professor. As a consultant, I am constantly involved in the design of substation automation systems and research on the integration of new technologies for transportation electrification.
I am deeply concerned about the major role Data Science will play in future decades. Then I am committed to utilize data science tools appropriately in power system engineering.
I am currently part of the optimization of more- and fully-electric aircraft power system architectures team, within the Power Electronics and Electrical Machines group.
I have had contributions in the power system field with several topics such as reliability, distributed generation, renewable generation applications, and stability.
I will perform research in the transportation electrification field.
