Ricard Vilalta (Girona, 1983) graduated in telecommunications engineering in 2007 and received a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications in 2013, both from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain. He also has studied Audiovisual Communication at UOC (Open University of Catalonia) and is a master degree on Technology-based business innovation and administration at Barcelona University (UB). Since 2010, Ricard Vilalta is a researcher at CTTC, in the Optical Networks and Systems Department. He is currently a Research Associate at Open Networking Foundation, leading standardization efforts in the field of Software Defined Networking.

His research is focused on SDN/NFV, Network Virtualization and Network Orchestration. He has been involved in several international, EU, national and industrial research projects: 5G-Crosshaul, EU-Japan STRAUSS, ICT IDEALIST, ICT COMBO, ICT STRONGEST, ICT OFELIA, FP6 E-Cab, and Spanish MINECO FARO and DORADO. He has also authored and co-authored more than 100 journals, conference papers and invited talks.
