Francisco Vázquez Gallego, received his B.Sc. in Electronics Engineering (1995), M.Sc. (2000) and PhD (2016) degrees in Telecommunication Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). He has more than 15 years of experience in R&D, working in multidisciplinary projects for space and industrial applications. He has participated in the development and manufacturing of prototypes and flight equipment for the European Space Agency (ESA), within the micro-gravity field and life-support systems, in projects like MARES (Muscle Atrophy Research & Exercise System, for NASA/ESA), EPU (Experiment Preparation Unit, for ESA), High Resolution Digital Still-Camera for Aerial Photography (for Institut Cartogràfic de Catatalunya, ICC), HAEMOSCAN and MULTIGEN (for ESA). Francisco has a broad and proven experience in the design and implementation of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) networks, embedded systems, and electronics. Since January 2010, he is working at the M2M department of CTTC as Senior Researcher and collaborates in several industrial and public funded research projects. Francisco obtained his IEEE Senior Member in 2011 and works as reviewer for numerous international conferences. His main research interests are focused on wireless communications and include the design, theoretical analysis, modelling and implementation of energy-efficient protocols for wireless networks, MAC protocols, Distributed Queuing (DQ) access, M2M networks, and baseband digital signal processing algorithms (physical layer) in FPGA.
