Short Bio

Javier Díaz obtained an M.Eng. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia in 2001. Additionally, he obtained a M.Sc. degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management from the University of Manchester, UK in 2003. Before joining Ikergune as a R&D Project Manager responsible for the advanced manufacturing research area, he has gathered near 10 years of industrial experience working in different positions related with R&D: Senior Consultant in a R&D consulting firm 2010-2014, R&D Director in a business group dedicated to the wind energy sector 2008-2010 and Director for the Advanced Manufacturing Area in the ASCAMM Technology Centre 2006-2008. Currently, he is also a Ph.D. student at the UPM's Artificial Intelligence Department, taking part in the CDTI CARES project.

Research interests

His research interest is focused on machine learning algorithms related with novelty detection and spatio-temporal feature subset selection, with application to machine tool industry within the Industrie 4.0 paradigm.
