David Pubill (Lleida, 1980) obtained his M.Sc. degree in Telecommunications Engineering at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in July 2006.

Prior to join CTTC he worked at Centre de Telecomunicacions i Tecnologies de la Informació de la Generalitat de Catalunya (CTiTI) designing radiant systems for TV, radio, Wi-Fi and WiMAX. He also participated in the frequency planning and interference study on these technologies for the Catalan radio spectrum.

In August 2006 he joined CTTC as Research Engineer in the area of Access Technologies where he worked in several national and international projects based on WiMAX. Later he joined the Engineering Unit group where he specialized in ranging techniques for Wi-Fi systems and he collaborated in the implementation of an open source GNSS-SDR receiver. David is currently working at the Smart Energy Efficient Communication Technologies (SMARTECH) department within the Communication Technologies Division (CTD) as a Senior Researcher.

He has been co-recipient of the best demo award of the IEEE CAMAD 2018 conference, the ENIAC JU 2015 innovation award for the E2SG project and the second prize in the ENF´15 exhibition award.

He has been involved in several industrial projects (WI4GOAL, C2CP, H4WP), national funded projects (WIMSAT, CellFive, SPOT5G) and European funded projects (ARTEMISA, E2SG, COPCAMS, ESEE, IoSENSE, CONNECT, SEMIOTICS, 5G-SOLUTIONS, MonB5G, PROGRESSUS, OPTIMIST). He has several scientific publications in national and international conferences.

His main research interests include smart grid, energy efficiency,  smart metering, smart building/home, Internet of Things and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).

Since 2015 he is the coordinator of the IoTWORLD testbed. He has led the CTTC participation in several international fairs such as the IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) and the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), editions between 2015 and 2019.
