Juan Antonio Corrales received a Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Alicante (Spain) in 2005. He received the Doctorate degree in Automatic Control and Robotics from the Escuela Politécnica Superior, Universidad de Alicante (Spain) in 2011. From 2006 to 2011 we worked as a Ph.D. student (FPU Program) at the University of Alicante. From 2012 to 2014 he worked at UPMC—Université Pierre et Marie Curie (France) and ISIR—Institut des Systémes Intelligents et de Robotique (France). From 2014 to 2020 he worked as Associate Professor at Sigma Clermont Engineering School (Clermont-Ferrand, France) where he gave courses in automatic control, programming and robot control and was researcher at the Institut Pascal laboratory, in the axis ISPR and the team MACCS. He participated in several national and international projects with industrial applications: FUI Aerostrip, H2020 Bots2Rec, Sudoe Commandia, H2020 SoftManBot and H2020 ACROBA. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher of the Program "Beatriz Galindo" at University of Santiago de Compostela and CiTIUS laboratory. His research interests include human–robot interaction and robotic manipulation.
