PhD in electrical engineering with research activity in signal processing and digital communications, able to leverage mathematical and programming tools for information theory. With talent to create and synthetize knowledge, exhibits creative critical thinking, and professional communication skills.
Josep Font-Segura received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, in 2014. In 2008-2009, he was research assistant with the information signal processing group at Columbia University, New York. Since 2014 he is research associate at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, with the information theory and coding group.
Dr Font-Segura is a member of the IEEE. He is recipient of a ''la Caixa'' fellowship for graduate studies in the United States, a best paper award at the IEEE International Conference on Communications, and a Juan de la Cierva postdoc fellowship from the Spanish government. He was member of the organizing committee of the IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory in 2016, and he was vice-chair of the Spanish chapter of the IEEE Information Theory Society in 2018-2019. He also contributed as reviewer in several journal and conference publications of the IEEE society.
Dr Font-Segura's research interests are in the areas of information theory, mathematical physics, communications, and signal processing. He is author or co-author of 12 journal articles, 2 preprints, 24 refereed articles in conferences and 9 technical reports. His scientific output has more than 260 citations in the fields of cognitive radio, multiuser communication, random coding and exterior-algebra electromagnetism.
