Hugo Carreno-Luengo (IEEE S’12–M’14) received the degree in aeronautics engineering (“bachelor + master,” Specialization in Spacecrafts) from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Aeronáuticos, the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain, in 2010 and the Ph.D. degree (cum laude) from the Department of Physics, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, 2016.
From 2009 to 2010, he performed the final degree project at the Department of Aircrafts and Space Vehicles. In 2011, he performed the Master of Space Science and Technology at the UPC. From 2012 to 2015, he was the Principal Investigator (PI) of the TORMES and TORMES 2.0 projects within ESA’s REXUS/BEXUS and a co-PI in the E-GEM FP7 project. From 2013 to 2014, he was a Visiting Researcher with ESA-ESTEC, DLR, Esrange Space Center, and in Summer 2016, he was invited by the China Great Wall Industry Coorporation to assist the launch campaign of the 3Cat-2 CubeSat at Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. His research interests include the use of GNSS-R techniques to perform Earth remote sensing from nanosatellites.
Dr. Carreno-Luengo was a Session Chair at the 2015, 2017, and 2018 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, and he has been the member of the IEEE GRSS since 2017. He was the recipient of the Predoctoral Fellowship by the Institut d’Estudis Espacials de Catalunya, and the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory fellowship for a postdoctoral position (2016–2017) at Pasadena, CA, USA, in 2016. He was the recipient of the first position of the “Juan de la Cierva” research program, of an IEEE GRSS award for the best Ph.D. thesis in geoscience and remote sensing, in 2017, and of the UPC Special Award in Science, in 2018.
