Pablo López García was born in Asturias (SPAIN) in 1972 and graduated in 1998 in Industrial Engineering in the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Industrial de Gijón. After almost 20 years working in different technological applications, mainly within the European automotive industry, in April 2017 he joined the Robotics & Multibody Mechanics team of the VUB to pursue a PhD research on the topic of Transmissions suitable for electrical actuators in the field of robotics.


The focus of his research is on Transmissions with very high gear ratios and high efficiency, especially suitable to be used in combination with electrical actuators for robotics applications.
