Pablo Gomez Esteban received, in March 2014 by the Rey Juan Carlos University of Madrid, his PhD for his thesis entitled ďCooperation and Competition in Emotional Robot SocietiesĒ with highest distinction. His research was addressed towards decision making processes within competitive and cooperative environments; the impact that affective factors have in such processes; and designing and implementing those models to be used in non-expensive platforms (like the AiSoy1 robot) within domestic environments. But his research interests also lie on cognitive architectures for social robots and human-robot interaction.


The focus of his research is the development of robot-enhanced therapy for children with autism spectrum disorders. See DREAM's website and Probo's website.
