About:

After obtaining my M.Sc. in Communication Systems Engineering by the University of Zaragoza in 2005 I’ve been working as a researcher for the Zaragoza University, first as a granted student and later I become an assistant researcher where I worked mainly in optical access networks and POF fibres. I received my Ph. D. in “Information and Communications Technologies in mobile networks” from Zaragoza University in 2011. In April 2012 I accepted a position as a research fellow in the University of Glamorgan (Wales, UK) where I’ve started to work in other fields of electro-optical science such as optical metrology and where I’m currently stay.

The orientation of my Ph. D. along with all the work of the last years has given me a very strong background in experimental and lab work. With a great knowledge of lab devices and equipment and a positive attitude to propose and evaluate experimental schemes

Main Research Areas:

Optical Communications, Passive Optic Networks (PON), Access optical Networks, Semiconductor Amplifiers (SOA), Frequency Scanning Interference (FSI) metrology, Optical Metrology, Plastic Optic Fibre (POF).
