José Luis Gordillo graduated in industrial engineering from Technological Institute of Aguascalientes, Mexico. He obtained both the D.E.A. degree and the Ph.D. in computer science from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble, France, in 1983 and 1988, respectively. From 1989 to 1990 he was assistant professor at the Department of Automatic Control of the Center for Advanced Studies and Research of the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico (CINVESTAV-IPN).

Currently, Dr. Gordillo leads the Robotics National Laboratory and the Research Group on Robotics at this institution. He founded this laboratory in 2010, granted by CONACYT and Tecnológico de Monterrey. He has been a visitor professor in the Computer Science Robotics Laboratory at Stanford University (1993), at the Project Sharp of INRIA Rhone-Alpes in France (2002 and 2004), at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse, France (2007-2008), and at some other universities and research institutes. His research interests are in computer vision and olfaction for robotics applications, in specific autonomous vehicles on ground and air. He participated and leaded R&D projects with industry like Honewell Bull in France, Sun Microsystems, Peñoles and TV Azteca; and government entities like the Mexican Army, the French-Mexican Laboratory for Computer Science (LaFMI), the Institute of the Water of the Nuevo Leon state (IANL), and the National Council for Science and Technology in Mexico (CONACYT). Especially, he promoted and leaded the National Net on Robotics and Mechatronics (RobMec) of CONACYT from 2010 to 2014.
