Participation in projects

He has led as Principal Investigator 2 industrial contracts with GILAT on precoding techniques in satellite networks and with HUAWEI on integrated satellite and terrestrial architectures. He has participated in 1 industrial contract with INMARSAT on the performance evaluation of satellite IoT systems.

He has participated in 3 European projects (PHYDYAS, EMPHATIC, FANTASTIC-5G), 2 European Space Agency contracts (AIM-SAT, SERP) and 3 national projects (GRE3N, ELISA, TERESA). He has participated in 1 network of excellence in research (SATNEX IV) with the European Space Agency. Within SATNEX IV, he has participated in 3 work items (1 as technical leader).

- FANTASTIC-5G. Role (WP3): Design of link adaptation algorithms and HARQ retransmission schemes using nonbinary LDPC in 5G communication systems.
- EMPHATIC. Role (WP5): Design of margin adaptive scheduling algorithms in filter bank multicarrier systems.
- PHYDYAS. Role (WP9): Developing a receiver prototype based on the WIMAX standard to evaluate the filter bank multicarrier modulation.
- SERP. Role (WP120): Design, performance assessment and implementation of frequency-packing techniques and binary LDPC codes to increase the spectral efficiency in multi-beam satellite systems.
- AIM-SAT (WP leader).  Role (WP120): Design, performance assessment and implementation of decentralized multiuser detection techniques to combat interference in multi-beam satellite systems.
- TERESA. Role (Subproject Advanced techniques for satellite communication systems): Develop satellite air interfaces able to provide ubiquitous low-cost access and highrate services in the context of 5G and beyond networks.
- ELISA (WP leader). Role (Subproject New waveforms and multiantenna schemes for licensed and unlicensed shared access): Waveform and MIMO design.
- GRE3N. Role (Subproject LINK and MAC layer aspects): Contribute to the design of an energy efficient air interface using the filter bank multicarrier modulation scheme as waveform.
- SATNEX IV. Role (Workitem WI4.2-A NOMA Techniques for Satellite): Study of random access schemes that enable the heterogeneous coexistence of different class of terminals.
- SATNEX IV (technical leader). Role (Workitem WI3 Non-Orthogonal Superposition Techniques for Multi-Beam Satellite Networks): Investigate the rate bounds in multiple beam downlink channels.
- SATNEX IV. Role (Workitem WI7 Air interface development for LEO constellations): Design of PHY and MAC procedures robust to Doppler effects and large propagation delays to implement a LTE-based LEO mega-constellation system.

He has experience in preparing proposals for European Commission funded projects (ITN, ICT, LEIT-SPACE, SPACE-TEC, SU-DRS, CELTIC), for European Space Agency funded projects (ARTES, TRP) and for projects funded by the Spanish Government (CICYT, AEESD). He has been the leader of 1 project proposal submitted to the call H2020-SPACE-TEC-29.


In September 2009, he was granted by the Spanish Government to carry out his Ph.D. studies in the Signal Theory and Communications Department at UPC. In 2018 he received the 2-year postdoctoral Juan de la Cierva fellowship from the Spanish Government.

Academic Mentoring

He has co-supervised 2 BSc Theses (June 2018, June 2017).

Other merits

He served as technical program committee of GLOBALSIP’19, EUCNC’19, EUCNC’20, ICC-Workshops’20. Since 2020 he is Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He is author of 10 Journals and more than 30 international conference papers.

As a member of the 5G Satellite Working Group of the IEEE International Network Generations Roadmap (INGR) he has participated in the Satellite 5G Roadmap report – 1st edition published by IEEE in December 2019.
