As Technical Head of Reimagine Drone, Heriberto leads Brinc’s drone program and incubator in Barcelona. In addition to driving the technical vision for the program he works closely with Reimagine Drone startups to ensure they get access to the latest drone platforms and technologies to develop commercially viable services and applications for global markets.

Post graduation, Heriberto received a master’s degree at National Cheng Kung University while joining an international scramjet (supersonic engine) research project between Russia and Taiwan. He was awarded the prestigious Hong Kong Ph.D. Fellowship Scheme and joined the PolyU High-speed Therm-fluid and MAV/UAV Laboratory where he developed software, which he hopes, will help to design the next generation of space vehicles and planes.
