Aug 2020 - Present

Expert - Huawei Technologies France

Apr 2019 – Feb 2020

Distinguised Member of Staff - Nokia Bell Labs

Before leaving Nokia, I led Bell Labs research on future indoor networks, investigating both new multi-antenna technologies as well as ultra-reliable low latency features. I was also responsible for a cross-organisation project, targeted at Industry 4.0, named as hyper-critical wireless, in which I coordinated over 20 researchers.

May 2015 – Apr 2019

Senior Research Scientist - Nokia Bell Labs (former Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs)

As a senior member, I pioneered work on LTE and WLAN inter-working, forming part of the team that invented Wi-Fi Boost, later standardised as 3GPP LWIP. After that, I organised Nokia’s research efforts on ---and contributions to--- IEEE 802.11be. The outcomes of these two works had standardisation and business impact.

May 2012 – May 2015

Research Scientist - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs

During my first epoch at Bell Labs, I did extensive analyses, both theoretical and simulated, on ultra-dense networks, and developed both inter-cell interference and mobility management techniques. During these years, my work resulted in a large number of patents, which are exploited today by Nokia Technologies.

Education

Aug 2010 - Dec 2011

Research Associate - King's College London

I worked as a Research Associate at the Center for Telecommunication Research, King's College London, London, UK, on the development of inter-cell interference mitigation solutions through downlink orthogonal frequency multiple access resource allocation in networks that have small cells overlaid on macrocells

May 2007 - Apr 2011

PhD Marie Currie Fellow - Univeristy of Bedfordshire

Thesis: “Practical Models and Optimization Methods for Inter-Cell Interference coordination in self-organizing cellular networks” --- Reviewers: Dr. Holger Claussen, Head of Autonomous Networks and Systems Research Department at Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent, Dublin, Ireland and Prof. Carsten Maple, Head of Computer Science and Technology Department at University of Bedfordshire, Luton, UK

Sep 2003 - Sep 2006

MSc Telecommunication - Universidad Miguel Hernandez

Thesis: “Development of the frequency planner, AFP-Tool, for GSM/DCS mobile networks of VODAFONE Spain”

Sep 2000 - Sep 2003

BSc Telecommunication Systems - Universidad Miguel Hernandez

Thesis: “Performance analysis of diversity techniques for Hiperlan/2 networks. Design of a link layer simulator”
