Jordi Mateu received the Telecommunication Engineering and Ph.D. degrees from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, in 1999 and 2003, respectively. Since 2007, he is with the Department of Signal Theory and Communications (TSC) at UPC, where he holds the position of Associate Professor, and with Centre Tecnologic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) as external Senior Research Associate.
Prior to that, in summer 1999, he held a trainee engineer position at Investment Technology department, Gillette, UK. In 2000, he joined TSC department to pursuit PhD studies. From May to August 2001, he was Visiting Researcher with Superconductor Technologies Inc., Santa Barbara CA. In October 2002, he joined CTTC as Research Associate and later as Coordinator of Communication Subsystems Area, until August 2005. During that period, he was also Part-time Assistant professor at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. In September 2005, he joined the Electromagnetic Division NIST, Boulder, CO, as Fulbright Research Fellow until December 2006. During July 2016 to June 2017, he was (on Sabbatical from UPC) International Associate Guest Researcher at NIST, inside the Communication Technology Laboratory, at Boulder, CO. Additionally, he has held several short-term (<3 month) Research Appointments at NIST (September 2004, summer 2007, summer 2008, April 2009, January 2015 and May 2015), accumulating over three years of experience at NIST. In July 2006, he was visiting Researcher at Lincoln Lab., MIT. In 2007 he joined TSC department of UPC as a Ramon y Cajal Fellow.
Dr. Mateu was the recipient of the 2004 Prize for the best doctoral thesis in Fundamental and Basic Technologies for Information and Communications by both COIT and AEIT. He was also the recipient of a Postdoctoral Fulbright Research Fellowship and an Occasional Lecturer Award from CIES (Council of International Exchange of Students). He was granted with a Ramón y Cajal Contract (2005-2010), being ranked second at National level, in Electrical and Communication Technologies, a National Program for promoting outstanding Young researchers. He is co-recipient of the 2017 second price for the best transfer technology project of UPC. He was granted by the Spanish government to pursuit with his PhD studies (2000-2003). From February 2011 to June 2012 he was Vice-Dean at Telecommunication and Aerospace Engineering School at UPC, in charge of academic affairs. During 2012-2014 he was director of the Master on Airports and Air Navigation at FUPC, and Course Manager for the Basic Training Course for Air Traffic Controllers. He is IEEE Senior member. He was Technical Editor of Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 2016, and Member of Editorial Board at the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering. He has been serving as member of technical committee in several conferences. He is reviewer of several journals and international conferences.
