Josep Mª Fabrega Sanchez obtained the BSc and MSc degrees in telecommunications engineering from Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC-BarcelonaTech) in 2002 and 2006, respective. In 2010, he obtained the PhD in signal theory and communications from UPC-BarcelonaTech, specializing in fiber-optic transmission systems.

During 2004-2010 he was R&D engineer in the optical communications group of UPC-BarcelonaTech, where he carried out the PhD. In 2010 he joined the optical networks and systems (ONS) department of CTTC as post-doctoral researcher. In November 2012 he was upgraded to become permanent researcher of the same department. In March 2017 he was promoted to a senior researcher position of the ONS department of CTTC.

Nowadays, he has more than 10 years of experience in optical subsystems R&D. His specialization is on optical transmission systems, including those concerning multi-carrier modulations, not only from the design and modeling perspective, but also he has an extensive laboratory experience. Therefore, he has contributed to and demonstrated new modulation formats, subsystems and transceiver concepts specifically designed for different applications and network segments, including core, aggregation and access.

In the last 10 years, he has actively participated in different publicly funded research projects, at the national (4) and European level (10). Precisely, at the national level, he has been part of 4 R&D projects: DESTELLO (TEC2015-69256-R), FARO (TEC2012-38119), DORADO (TEC2009-07995) and TEYDE (TEC2008-01887). At the European level, he has been involved in a plurality of projects during the same time period, including H2020 ONFIRE (H2020-MSCA-ITN-765275), H2020 PASSION (H2020-ICT-780326), H2020 METROHAUL (H2020-ICT-761727), H2020 Bluespace (H2020-ICT-762055), H2020 Crosshaul (H2020-ICT-671598), FP7 EU/JP STRAUSS (ICT-FP7-608528), FP7 IDEALIST (ICT-FP7-317999), FP7 BONE (ICT-FP7-216863), FP7 EUROFOS (ICT-FP7-224402) and FP7 SARDANA (ICT-FP7-217122).

He also has leaded and participated in different projects for technology valuation and transfer to the industry, precisely with DIMAT S.A. (Barcelona, ES), CERCA institution (Barcelona, ES), KDDI R&D (Saitama, JP), and AST&Science (Miami, USA).

He is the author of 40 publications and coauthor of 81 publications, all of them in international journals (25, 17 of them in Q1) and conferences (96), covering theoretical and practical aspects of transmission devices and systems for fiber optic communications.

His scientific/technologic research interests and objectives include optical transmission devices, systems and subsystems, as well as advanced modulation formats focused to novel segments, applications and services.

From the training point of view, he has (co-)directed 3 PhD theses (2 of them ongoing) and 14 BSc/MSc theses, all of them dealing with different aspects of fiber optic communication transmission systems. He is also the author of different didactic materials for subjects related to optical communication systems and networks, in the framework of different Master degrees.
