Rubén Morales-Ferré received both BSc in Telecommunication Systems Engineering and MSc in Telecommunication engineering from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 2016 and 2018, respectively. He is currently pursuing a double PhD degree in information and electrical engineering at Tampere University (TAU) and UAB.

He worked as research assistant at UAB in Signal Processing for Communications & Navigation (SPCOMNAV) group until 2018. In 2018 he received a TAU rector’s grant, which partially finances his PhD studies. He is also working as a PhD researcher in EU funded projects such as GATEMAN, FINESSE and INNUENDO.

On November 15, 2022, he completed his PhD entitled "Interference Management and System Optimization with GNSS and non-GNSS Signals for Enhanced Navigation"
