The next paragraph below has been taken from the formal short biography I usually send to IEEE papers. I hope to be far more interesting now since I am involved in many Bachelor’s and Master’s theses that use Arduino, NodeMCU and STM32L4 microcontrollers to make low-cost gadgets. I’d like to be considered as maker and STEM wielder. My research interests are veering to a new and interesting topic: energy harvesting for IoT applications. Let’s see how all this ends.

Guillermo Robles was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1969. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from the Comillas University of Madrid, Spain, in 1993 and 2002, respectively. In 2002, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering in the Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain, where he has been an Associate Professor since 2009. He is also with the High-Voltage Research and Tests Laboratory (LINEALT). He has coauthored more than 70 papers in international journals and conferences. His research interests include the design of sensors, instrumentation and measurement techniques for high frequency currents and UHF signals, particularly due to partial discharges in noisy environments. He is currently involved in the development of algorithms for the localization of radio-frequency sources, the determination of time differences of arrival to the array of antennas and the optimization of the antenna layout to improve the localization accuracy.
