Student Profile(s)

Rodrigo Daniel Solis Ortega

Rodrigo graduated with a masters degree in Mechatronics and Robotics in 2015 before returning to Leeds in 2016 to pursue his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, and is also currently working as a Teaching Assistant in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

When deciding on where to study for his masters degree, Rodrigo found that the University of Leeds was one of the few universities that offered a course on Mechatronics. As he wasn’t fond of big cities, Rodrigo found Leeds and the University of Leeds to be the perfect match for him.

For his masters research project, titled "Software tool for electric power estimation of robotic exoskeletons", Rodrigo work on developing a software tool to estimate the power requirements of a robotic exoskeleton. He said, “the tool was aimed to facilitate the design process behing robotic exoskeletons, specifically the selection of the actuator technology.”

After graduating in 2015 with a masters degree, Rodrigo returned to Leeds to pursue his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering a year later. He said “The high teaching standards of the University of Leeds gave me the confidence to pursue a PhD degree here. After living here for a year during my masters degree, I also fell in love with the University and its’ huge international community, which is also very evident in the city itself.”

“I have been in Leeds for almost six years now, and it has been such an amazing experience. The city has something for everyone. The international community and support offered by the University is excellent as well. Now that I have finished my PhD studies, I am looking for a position as a machine learning or data science engineer, or as an embedded system enginner.”
