Guillermo Rodriguez is a research engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology. He received a Ph.D. degree in system science from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1974, and has been at JPL since then. He has participated in the development of autonomous control systems flown in spacecraft for planetary missions, including the Viking mission to Mars, the Voyager mission to several planets in the outer solar system, and the Galileo mission to Jupiter and its moons.

Since the mid 1980's, he has been involved in conducting research for NASA research and technology programs in robotics and control, and their application to planetary surface exploration. His research interests include analysis in hierarchical systems, estimation theory, control of nonlinear multi-body systems, and control architectures for autonomous systems. A recent area of research emphasis is that of development of system evaluation methods. His research contributions to robot dynamics led to the NASA Software of the Year Award jointly awarded to him and his JPL colleague A. Jain in 1997 (http://dshell.jpl.nasa.gov).
