Gregorio López received his PhD in Telecommunications Engineering from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) in 2014, under the supervision of Prof. José Ignacio Moreno. His PhD dissertation received the Extraordinary PhD Dissertation Award from UC3M 2015 and the CISCO-COIT Award to the Best PhD Dissertation in Applications of the Internet of Everything 2015. From 2014 to April 2017, he combined researching with teaching in UC3M, Universidad Antonio de Nebrija and Universidad Pontificia Comillas – ICAI. In 2016 he received the Spanish Assistant Professor Habilitation from ANECA (the Spanish Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education). Since April 2017 until the end of 2018, he worked as Assistant Professor at the Telecommunications Engineering School of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, teaching Information Theory and Communications Networks and researching in the intersection of IoT (Internet of Things) and cybersecurity in the research group lead by Prof. Julio Berrocal. Since January 2019, he works as Assistant Professor at Universidad Pontificia Comillas – ICAI, teaching several subjects related with telecommunications. He gathers wide experience in close-to-market research gained through his participation in more than 10 national and European research projects in collaboration with industry leaders. Such projects have been related with next generation networks (NGN), wireless sensor networks (WSN), and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and their applications to e-health and Smart Grids. As a part of his PhD, in 2010 and 2011 he carried out two research internships in the Institute of Systems and Robotics of Universidade de Coimbra (Coimbra, Portugal) under the supervision of Prof. Pedro Moura and Prof. Anibal T. de Almeida, and in 2008 he worked as intern in Deutsche Telekom Laboratories (Berlin, Germany) with an Erasmus Placement under the supervision of Mr. Hans Einsiedler. As a result of his research activity, he holds an European Patent and has published more than 20 papers in top-tier conferences and journals. His current research interests revolve around the optimization of M2M communications networks based on analysis and simulation, cybersecurity and data analytics for the IoT, and the use of technology and the Internet.
