I am Marcos Maroto, a Phd student and researcher at Robotics Labs. Welcome to my web site where you can find information about my professional profile and bio.
I was born in Talavera de la Reina (Toledo, Spain), on 31st July 1993 but I have lived in a small village called Santa Ollalla all my life. My professional details come next.
I studied my degree in Industrial Electronics and Automation Engineering at University of Castilla La-Mancha from 2011-2015. I researched about locomotion in wheeled mobile robots, topic of my final degree project. At that moment, I was fascinated by the amazing world of robotics.
In 2015, I moved to Madrid for studying a MsC in Robotics and Automation up to 2017. That year, I joined the social robots group which belongs to Robotics Lab to research about the design of social robots and human-robot interaction. In 2017, I realized my final MSC project about the design of a new pet social robot.
Right now, I am studying a Phd in Decion Making and Learning applied to social robots. The main objective of this research is to obtain bioinpired systems endowing robots with 'autonomy' and 'intelligence' in decision making.
For this reason, my interests are related to social robots, machine learning, artificial intelligence, motivations and emotions in social robots, human-robot interaction and robot design.
