Born in Guadalajara-Mexico. His academic path started with engineering honors as best bachelor student of whole XL generation at CETI-Guadalajara. David holds a master’s in computer science from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN-Cinvestav-Mx) with the focus on Geometry Vision for Humanoid Robots. He obtained his doctor in engineering (Dr.-Ing.) on Environmental Robot Perception for Grasping and Manipulation on Humanoid Robots with honors in southwest Germany at the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT). After that he conducted research for multiple European projects on Robotics and AI as a Post-doctoral research fellow at the KIT. His work comprehends 25+ publications in top conferences and journals with hundredths of citations as well as 70+ filed patents in a broad spectrum of multi-modal sensing and novel representation technologies applied within rapid evolving fields such as robotics, smart-spaces, autonomous vehicles, VR, AR, etc. He is currently a senior research scientist and robotics team manager within the Intelligent System Research Lab at Intel-Labs. His engagement on the Mexican Net of Talent Aboard, Intel Latin Network, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and German Society for Robotics reflect his genuine motivation to contribute to his dual background.
