Carlos Mateo Domingo got his degree in Industrial Engineering from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, and his diploma on Computer Engineering from the U.N.E.D, in 2000. He joined the Institute for Research in Technology in 2001 and got the Ph.D. in Industrial and Computer Engineering in 2007 with a thesis on Modes of Elastic Wave Propagation in Electrical Cables. Currently, he is coordinator of the Smart and Sustainable Grids area in IIT. He is specialized in the electricity power system and in particular in distribution network modelling and in the assessment of the impact of distributed energy resources. He has participated in several European research projects (MERGE, IMPROGRESS, ADVANCED, SUSTAINABLE, PV-GRID,…), collaborated with the industry and with Spanish institutions (CNMC, Iberdrola, Ormazabal,…) and participated in international research projects with prestigious and renowned institutions (MIT, NREL, World Bank,…). He has collaborated in the creation of the DSO Observatory for the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. He has taken part in the SMART-DS project with NREL and MIT to build large-scale synthetic networks for the U.S. Department of Energy. In the context of this collaboration, he has been visiting researcher at NREL and MIT. He has also collaborated with the World Bank to analyze the impact of demand response in Central America, and with MIT to propose electrification solutions in developing countries. He has the accreditations of three six-year research in Engineering and Architecture (Communication Engineering, Computing and Electronics), for the periods 2003-8, 2009-14, and 2015-20, as well as the ANECA and ACAP Certifications of PhD assistant professor.
