Iván García Daza received the MSc and PhD degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Alcalá (UAH), Madrid (Spain), in 2004 and 2011 respectively. At present he is Assistant Professor at the Computer Engineering Department at the University of Alcalá and member of the INVETT research group since 2007. In this period he has collaborated on more than 15 projects with public and private funding. All the projects are related with computer science techniques applied on intelligent transportation system.
From 2012 to 2017 he was joined to Companies like Orbital Aerospace and Escribano Mechanical Engineer for 1 and 4 years respectively. He developed control systems with were applied to Aircraft and Gyro Stabilization systems. In this period, he acquired product development skills very useful for researching applications focused on a commercial product.
His research interests are mainly focused on intelligent transportation systems where topics like accurate mapping process, dynamic and cinematic cars models, sensor fusion and LiDAR perception are well known. He is the author of more than 20 refereed papers in international journals and conferences. He has served as a member of the Program Committee of the 15th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics held in Porto Portugal from 29 to 31 of July 2018. He reviews regular papers on Intelligent Transportation Systems Society Conference since 2011. On the teaching scope, he collaborates on Innovation Teaching Group within Systems Engineering and Automation Area and is the Head of the Systems Engineering and Automation Teaching Area from 2018.
In 2010 he was visitor research in the Department of Applied Mechanics at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg. He was under the supervision of Dr. Mattias Wahde, who is an expert on stochastic optimization algorithms, improving the knowledges about optimization process that was applied in a Drowsiness Detection System based on Computer Vision algorithms.
Since September 2015 he is certified as Assistant Professor by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA).
