Martí Mañosas Caballú was born in Seu d'Urgell, Spain, in 1984. He received the M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in 2009, and he started his PhD studies in March 2009 at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain. From March 2008 to July 2008, he was a visiting scholar at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, where he was involved in topics of visual information engineering and numerical methods. From July 2011 to September 2011, and from July 2012 to September 2012, he was a short-term visiting scholar at the University of California Irvine, USA, where he was involved in signal processing for beamforming in GNSS. He is currently working as a Research Assistant at the Department of Telecommunications and Systems Engineering, within the Signal Processing for Communications and Navigation (SPCOMNAV) group.  

Research interests

His research interests are in statistical signal processing for communications and navigation, array processing, beamforming and distributed beamforming.
