Bio

Gonzalo Seco-Granados was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1972. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunication Engineering in 1996 and 2000, respectively, from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona. In 2002, he also received an MBA from IESE - University of Navarra in Barcelona and Columbia University in New York. He was a guest researcher at Brigham Young University, Utah, from May -to -August -1999.-From 2002 to 2005, he was member of the technical staff at the TT&C and Radionavigation Section, European Space Agency, The Netherlands, involved in the Galileo project and in the development of radionavigation receivers. He led the activities concerning indoor positioning for GPS and Galileo.

Since the beginning of 2006, he is associate professor at the Department of Telecommunications and Systems Engineering of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Since March 2009, Gonzalo Seco Granados holds one of the six Chairs of Technology and Knowledge Transfer UAB Research Park - Santander. Dr. Seco-Granados received two best Ph.D. thesis awards from UPC and the Spanish Association of Telecommunication Engineers, as well as the best presentation award at the ION-GPS'2003 conference. He is Senior Member of the IEEE.

Gonzalo Seco-Granados received an ICREA Academia award in 2013 and 2019.
