Vita

Angel Lozano is a Professor of Information and Communication Technologies at UPF (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) in Barcelona, Spain, where he teaches and conducts research on wireless communications as head of the WiCom (Wireless Communications) Group. He is also UPF's Vice-Rector for Research. Born in Manresa, Spain, Prof. Lozano received the Telecommunications Engineering degree from UPC, Spain, in 1992 and the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, USA, in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Contemporarily, between 1996 and 1998, he also worked for Rockwell Semiconductor Systems (now Conexant Systems) in San Diego, USA. In 1999, he joined Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies, now Alcatel-Lucent) in Holmdel, USA, where he was a member of the Wireless Communications Research Department until 2008. Between 2005 and 2008 he was also an Adjunct Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, NY, USA. Prof. Lozano is a Fellow of the IEEE since 2014. He is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (since 2011), a former editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications (1999-2009) and the Journal of Communications & Networks (2010-2012), has guest-edited various journal special issues, and is actively involved in committees and conference organization tasks for the IEEE. In particular, he is the Chair of the IEEE Communication Theory Technical Committee (2013-2014) and was elected to the Board of Governors of the IEEE Communications Society (2012-2014). He has further participated in standardization activities for 3GPP, 3GPP2, IEEE 802.20 and the IETF. Prof. Lozano has published extensively, holds 15 patents, and has contributed to several books. His papers have received two awards: the best paper at the 2006 IEEE Int’l Symposium on Spread Spectrum Techniques & Applications, and the Stephen O. Rice prize to the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2008. He also received the Bell Labs President’s Gold Award in 2002 and the ICREA Academia Award from the Catalan Government in 2011. He has held visiting appointments at the University of Texas at Austin (USA), Imperial College (UK), the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel), the University of Minnesota (USA), Southeast University (China), and Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Chile).
