I am Associate Professor at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech, in the areas of remote sensing, radar and microwaves, with experience at different universities and research organizations in Spain, France, Germany and Luxembourg. Since November 2020 I have been positively evaluated by AQU for the Acreditation of Advanced Research & Full Professor. My research and teaching activities are framed in the area of remote sensing for Earth observation, mainly in active microwave remote sensing with Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR), in the Active Microwave Remote Sensing Group of the Remote Sensing Laboratory-RSLab, associated to the Signal Theory and Communications Department.
I am associate editor of the IEEE-JSTARS and the MDPI Remote Sensing journals, acting also as invited guest editor for several special issues. I contributed to the Spanish PAZ and the ESA’s SAOCOM-CS missions, in the proposal of the Parsifal mission and I am also member of the ESA’s Sentinel ROSE-L Mission Advisory Group. I was appointed vice-president of the IEEE-GRSS Spanish chapter, and in 2016 I became its secretary and treasurer. From 2011 I collaborate with the IEEE-GRSS Globalization initiative in Latin America, contributing to the creation of the IEEE-GRSS Chilean chapter and the organization of the 2020 LAGIRSS conference, being appointed as Latin America liaison in 2019. I am also co-chair of the Tutorial Technical Committee of the Indian 2020 InGARSS conference. Finally, from July 2020 I am also Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE-GRSS.
My interests also cover other remote sensing imaging technologies and the combined use for environmental monitoring and to mitigare climate change effects.
