Diego González-Aguilera
Director of the Department of Cartographic and Terrain Engineering and Head of the TIDOP group.

Graduated from the University of Salamanca (Spain) in Surveying Engineering (1999) and Higher Engineering in Geodesy and Cartography (2001), he started his research work as a visiting professor at the Institute of Computer Vision and Robotics (INRIA) in Grenoble (France), where he completed his PhD Thesis, entitled “3D reconstruction from a single view” in 2005. As a result of the research results obtained in his PhD Thesis, he obtained 6 international awards from the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS/ASPRS). Co-author of more than 400 articles in scientific journals and conferences. Co-inventor of 12 patents and 32 intellectual properties. Founder and CTO of the spin-off ITOS3D Engineering. Currently, he is Professor at the University of Salamanca in the area of engineering, Director of the Department of Cartographic and Terrain Engineering, Director of the TIDOP Research Group with more than 80 researchers, Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal Drones and Principal Investigator in more than 30 projects and contracts with entities and companies. In addition to his research activity, he regularly works as an evaluator member of the European Commission and National Agencies. In 2015 the contribution of his work to the progress of knowledge was recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineering with the ‘Juan López de Peñalver’ award.
