Ramon Costa-Castelló was born in Lleida, CATALUNYA, SPAIN in 1970, obtained the master degree in computer science in 1993 from the Facultat d’Informàtica de Barcelona (FIB) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), in 2001 he obtained the PhD degree in computer science from the Advanced Automation and Robotics (AAR) program from the Cibernetics Institute (Institut de Cibernètica, IC) at UPC. Currently, he is an Associate Professor at the Automatic Control department (Department of Enginyeria de Sistemes Automàtica i Informàtica Industrial, ESAII) and the Control and Organization Institute (Institut d’Organització i Control de Sistemes Industrials, IOC) both from UPC.

Currently, his teaching activity is related with the Industrial Engineering degree from the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria Industrial de Barcelona, ETSEIB) and the Master in Automation and Robotics (MAR) from the ESAII department. At this moment he is teaching: Computer Control, Advanced Control and Real Time Systems from the ETSEIB and Robust Control from the MAR.

His research is mainly focused on analysis and development of energy management (automotive and stationary applications) and the development of digital control techniques for tracking/rejection periodic signals (repetitive control, resonant control), with application to power electronic converters (active filters, rectifiers) and mechatronic plants. In parallel with this activity he works on the development of virtual/remote laboratories and interactive applications applied to teaching of automatic control. He is the author of a number of magazines and conference papers.

He is a Senior Member from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), member of the Comité Español de Automática (CEA) and member of IFAC (EDCOM, TC 9.4 Committee).
