Prof. Flores-Arias received his Ph.D. (2013) and his M.E. degree in Electronic Systems and Control Engineering (2001) from UCO (University of Cordoba), Spain. From 1990 to 1999, he was with INISEL, the Spanish National Company of Electronics and Systems, Roche Diagnostic Systems in Spain, Atlantic Cooper (Freeport-McMoran Group) and Refrescos Andalucia (Refresco Group B.V.). Since 2000, he has been with the University of Cordoba. His research interests are focused on different areas applied to utilities and energy management like power quality, power electronics, instrumentation or communications. He has authored and co-authored over 50 Scientific Articles and Conference Proceedings or Records within these topics as well as other types of publications for Academia.

He is involved with the IEEE CTSoc ICCE-Berlin Conference Organizing Committee in several positions since 2014 and serves as peer-reviewer for indexed journal of MDPI, Elsevier and IEEE.

He is with teaching research and methodological innovation units aimed to European Higher Education Area at the University of Córdoba from 2003. He has taken part in some Learning and Methodological Conferences, Learning Innovation Projects and authored several methodological papers focused on these experiences.

The set and the level of impact of the contributions included show the continuity and the level reached in the line of work followed in recent years in applying the Consumer Electronics in Energy Management Systems and Sustainability on pillars of:

  • a clear line of work deeply tied to the participation in the projects of research and contracts in which I have collaborated and
  • openness to internationalization ( associated with the IEEE-CTSoc of which I am an active member in the organization and management of events) and the establishment of lines of work shared with other international academic and research institutions (like the Polytechnic University of Marche in Ancona, Italy, where I stayed).

The impact of the JCR (Thomson Reuters) of the most relevant journal contributions, seven of them in first quartile in thematic areas of Engineering, Technology and Energy and the level of impact and quotes offered by several indicators.

In addition, the scientific activity has been recognized by the CNEAI with 2 six–years research periods. Moreover, he has been recognized 5 tranches (the maximum) of teaching, research and management activities by the Junta de Andalucía and he has been elevated by the IEEE to Senior Member on the third year of membership.
