Biography

Pablo Ameigeiras received his M.Sc.degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 1999 by the University of Malaga (Spain). He carried out his Master Thesis at the Chair of Communication Networks, Aachen University (Germany), under the supervision of P. Seidenberg and Professor B. Walke in the field of Random Access Mechanisms for Packet Services in UMTS.

In 2000, he joined the Cellular System Group at Aalborg University (Denmark). He worked toward his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Wireless Communications specialization) under the supervision of J. Wigard and Professor P. Mogensen, and with full sponsorship from Nokia Networks. In 2003 he defended his Ph.D. thesis "Radio Resource Management and Quality of Service for packet services in High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA)" where he studied state-of-art packet scheduling algorithms under QoS constraints for different services.

After finishing his Ph.D., Pablo worked for Optimi Corporation (later acquired by telecom equipment manufacturer Ericsson) as a Senior Member of Technical Staff. He was responsible for the design and development of software tools for the evaluation of 3G networks. Additionally he investigated radio planning and automatic optimization techniques for 3G networks.

In 2006, he joined the Department of Signal Theory, Telematics, and Communications at the University of Granada (Spain). Since then, he has been leading several projects in the field of 3G LTE and LTE-Advanced systems. During this period he has become a member of the Wireless and Multimedia Networking Lab, headed by Professor Lopez-Soler, and the Research Center for Information and Communication Technologies (CITIC) of the University of Granada. In 2012 he stayed at the Broadband Wireless Networking Lab headed by Professor I. Akyildiz investigating transmission in TV White Spaces. Currently, he is researching the application of the Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) paradigm for 5G systems.
