Jorge Baranda received his MSc. degree in Telecommunications Engineering and his MSc. in Science of Information and Communication Technologies (MINT) from the ETSETB-Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in July 2008. His Master Thesis consisted of the development of a system to detect and locate people in images and videos using Histogram of Oriented Gradients and Machine Learning techniques.
This work was developed within the Video Processing and Analysis group (VPA) of Philips Research at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven (The Netherlands). In October 2007, he received the “Leonardo da Vinci” grant from the Universitat Ramón Llull to help in the development of his Master Thesis. From 2008 to 2009, he worked at GMV in the Information Security department.
In November 2009 he joined the CTTC as a Research Engineer at the former Engineering Unit. In 2013, he became a Researcher in the Mobile Network Department of the Communication Networks and since 2019, he is a Senior Researcher. During his time in CTTC, he has participated in several European-funded projects (H2020, FP7), national funded projects (Retos Investigación I+D+i, COINCIDENTE) and industrial-funded projects. The development of such projects has allowed him to gain experience in the research and and development of standardized wireless communication systems (WiMAX, LTE, Li-Fi), mobile and transport networks and its orchestration and management using SDN and NFV techniques. He is also involved in the preparation of research proposals for competitive programs (European and National), as well as design, development and maintenance of the wireless segment of the EXTREME experimental facility.
His main research interests are focused on different aspects of networking: SDN, NFV and how these trends can complement or be integrated with former distributed networking concepts like efficient routing to develop next-generation mobile networks while integrating vertical industries to the telco ecosystem. He is also interested in radio wireless communication systems, mobile and transport networks, and signal and image processing.
