Coordinator

He obtained his dgree in Electronics Engineering in 2001 at Comillas Pontifical University. In 2007, he received his Ph.D. at the same university after developing a digital communications system based on OFDM, designed to optimize the transmission lines installed in transport vehicles. It has a M.Sc. in Communication Technologies and Systems at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 2013. At present, he develops research projects as a researcher at the Institute for Research in Technology, and teaches Electronics, Digital Electronics, Digital Signal Processing and Industrial Communications Systems, at the School of Engineering - ICAI. His areas of interest are digital communications, firstly wireless, programmable logic and embedded-systems.
