Biography

I received the Telecommunication Engineering degree from the University of Málaga (UMA), Spain, in 2006, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunication Technologies from the same University in 2008 and 2011, respectively. Between 2006 and 2011, I worked as an associate researcher at the Department of Communication Engineering (UMA), taking part in several research projects. Between 2011 and 2013 I worked in the Wireless Communications Research Group (WiCom), headed by Prof. Angel Lozano at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona (Spain), where I was a post-doctoral fellow and a lecturer. In January 2014, I joined the research group of Prof. Matthew McKay at the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), where I hold a Visiting Scholar position.

My research activity lies between the communication theory and signal processing areas, with a focus on wireless communications. I have conducted research on the statistical characterization and analysis of fading channels, multiple-antenna systems, link adaptation, and resource allocation, among others. Further, my current research interests include: spectrum sharing, interference characterization through stochastic geometry tools, and massive MIMO.
