Hola, i benvinguts. 
(Hello, and welcome.) 

I am a Professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, and the head of the Wireless & Secure Communications Research Group.

I received my Ph.D. in 1998 from Stanford University. Between 1999 and 2008, I was a with Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies, now Nokia) in Holmdel, USA. Between 2005 and 2008, I was also an Adj. Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University.

I am an IEEE Fellow and a Highly Cited Researcher, an Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and an editor of the IEEE Communication Technology News. In this recent posting, we tackle the future of technical conferences in the wake of Covid-19.

If you're interested in 5G wireless networks, check out the papers What Will 5G Be? and Five disruptive technology directions for 5G, the most cited articles on the subject.

I am the holder of the ERC Advanced Grant POSTCELL, a 5-year project that began in Oct. 2016. Postdoc and Ph.D. positions will open selectively throughout this period. Applications are also open for an early stage researcher position within the ITN MetaWireless. Details and instructions on how to apply can be found here.


My research and teaching over the last couple of decades is best summarized by the textbook Foundations of MIMO Communication, coauthored with my colleague Robert W. Heath Jr. from North Carolina State University.
