Short biography

I joined the Wireless Networking Group at IMDEA Networks in April 2015 as a post-doc researcher. My main areas of interest lie in cooperative communications for both wireless access and wireless multihop networks, including routing issues as well as practical validation on wireless testbeds. Currently, I focus on mm-Wave communications and, in particular, wireless LANs such as in the 802.11ad standard.

Prior to joining IMDEA Networks, I graduated in Electrical Engineering from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSIT UPM) and Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2011 after completing an international double degree program. After that, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Technische Universität Darmstadt in March 2015. During my PhD, I was a research associate at the Secure Mobile Networking Lab, contributing to the Research Priority Program Cocoon.
