Alexander Vergara received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Technological Institute of Durango, Mexico, in 2000 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. He serves currently as a Postdoctoral Scientist Associate at the BioCircuits Institute (BCI), University of California San Diego (UCSD), Calif, USA. His work mainly focuses on the use of dynamic methods for the optimization of gas-sensory microsystems and on the building of autonomous vehicles that can localize odor sources through a process resembling biological olfactory processing. His areas of interest include signal processing, pattern recognition, feature extraction, chemical sensor arrays, and machine olfaction.
