He completed his Ph.D in mechatronic (robotics) engineering at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in 1998, specializing in embedded controllers, robotic walking vehicles, simulation programming and force, speed and position controlled actuators. From 1998 to 2010, he lectured and developed the teaching and lab materials for several new mechanical, mechatronics and robotics engineering subjects at Curtin University of Technology, Western Australia, and at USQ, Queensland. Currently, Dr. Cubero works as a full time academic at the Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). His CV and some sample videos of his work can be viewed at: www.samcubero.com.
