David Gómez-Casco was born in Barberà del Vallès, Spain, in 1991. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc in telecommunication engineering in 2012 and 2014, respectively, from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). In December 2014 he started the PhD studies at the SPCOMNAV group. Since that date, he is also involved in the HISENS project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), which deals with new techniques of signal acquisition for GNSS receivers in conditions of weak signal reception.

Research interests

His research interests focus on statistical signal processing for communications and navigation.
