Dr. Concepción A. Monje Micharet received her MSc. Degree in Electronics Engineering from the Industrial Engineering School of the University of Extremadura, Spain, in 2001, and her Ph.D. Degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Extremadura, Spain, in 2006.
In September 2006 she joined the University Carlos III of Madrid, Spain, as a Visiting Professor in the Department of Electronics and Electromechanical Engineering, where she is currently teaching on Modelling and Control of Dynamic Systems and Robotics and researching on Control Architectures for Humanoid Robots. Her current position in this University is Juan de la Cierva Researcher, with over 450 teaching hours.
She has been working on the area of control and robotics for over eight years. She has collaborated with the CRONE (Commande Robuste Ordre Non Entier) team from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Électronique, Informatique et Radiocommunications of Bordeaux (ENSEIRB), publishing several works related to the tuning of fractional order controllers and co-organizing the 2nd IFAC Workshop on Fractional Differentiation and its Applications (FDA’06) during her stay in Bordeaux. She has also collaborated with the Electrical, Electronic, Automatic and Communications Engineering Department of the Technic High School of Industrial Engineers of the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, where she worked on the application of fractional order controllers to the control of flexible manipulators. Her collaborations in this field also extend to the Center for Self-Organizing and Intelligent System of the Utah State University, in USA, where she was invited to deliver a research lecture to Ph.D. students and a joint public lecture to members of the IEEE Control Systems Society San Diego Section.
She has chaired international conferences and she has been member of international program committees. She has been involved in many international and national research and industrial projects, and she has performed as reviewer of several international journals and conferences of relevance.
She has been author and co-author of over 40 technical papers mostly related to fractional order control and robotics.
