Guillermo Valencia-Palomo
PhD, MSc, BEng.
Automatic Control and Systems Engineering


Guillermo Valencia-Palomo was born in Merida, Mexico, in 1980. He received the Engineering degree in Electronics from the Tecnológico Nacional de México-IT Mérida, Mexico, in 2003, and the M.Sc. and the PhD degree in Automatic Control from the National Center of Research and Technological Development (CENIDET) in 2006 and The University of Sheffield U.K. in 2010, respectively. Since 2010, Dr. Valencia-Palomo is a Full-time (Tenured) Professor at Tecnológico Nacional de México-IT Hermosillo. He is author/co-author of over 60 research papers published in JCR-indexed journals and several international conferences. As a product of his research, he has 1 patent in commercial exploitation. He has led a number of funded research projects and the funding for these projects is comprised of a mixture of sole investigator funding, collaborative grants, and funding from industry. His research interests include predictive control, linear parameter varying systems, fault detection, fault-tolerant control systems, and their applications to different physical systems.
