Short Biography

Jaime Duque Domingo holds a PhD in Systems and Control Engineering from the UNED (2018), a Master’s Degree in Research in Software Engineering and Computer Systems from the UNED (2014) and a Master of Education (Mathematics) from the University Isabel I of Castilla (2018). He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Valladolid (2011) and a Technical Engineering Degree in Computer Engineering from the same university in 2000. He obtained the qualification of Cum Laude in the defence of his doctorate and has obtained five awards in his research career: INFAIMON Prize 2015 and 2018, awarded to the best paper on computer vision presented at the Jornadas Nacionales de Autom谩tica (Bilbao, 2015) and (Badajoz, 2018), IARIA-ICWMC Prize 2017, to the best paper presented at the International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Communications (Nice, France, 2017), Extraordinary Doctorate Prize of the UNED, awarded in November 2020 and the only prize awarded in the School of Computer Science in that course, and Innovadores 2022 Prize, awarded by Iberdrola and the newspaper El Mundo for the best University Research Project. For 18 years, he has worked on the development of complex IT projects for the private sector, both in Spain and abroad. He has carried out projects in the insurance/banking field (Seguros Caja Duero), in the field of governmental applications (French Social Security through ATOS IT), European Commission (working in the Commission’s IT Department in Brussels – DIGIT), in the automotive sector (Renault, Valladolid) or projects for online sales applications (MachinePoint). During the last few years, he has focused on the academic world, obtaining his PhD, participating in several national and international conferences, publishing several publications and teaching at universities. He has participated in three research projects, within the UNED, the University of Valladolid and CARTIF. He has published 13 articles in SCI-JCR indexed journals, in the first and second quartile, and has participated in 10 national and international conferences. His field of activity is mainly focused on computer vision and robotics, specialising in deep neural networks. He currently works at the University of Valladolid. He is accredited as 芦Profesor Contratado Doctor禄 by ANECA and ACSUCYL.
