I received the MSc in Telecommunication Engineering from Málaga University (Spain) in 2011. From 2011 until September 2013, I was working in the design of coherent receivers in III-V technology for the European project MIRTHE at the Photonics & RF research laboratory at Málaga University. In September 2013, I joined the Silicon Photonics research group at Paris-Sud University, where I worked on the development of silicon transceivers for the European projects PLAT4M and COSMICC. In October 2016, I defended my PhD entitled “High speed optical modulation, advanced modulation formats and mode division multiplexing in Silicon Photonics” at Paris-Sud University. Since October 2017 I work in the Photonics Research Labs at Polytechnic University of Valencia developing optical links with Spatial Division Multiplexing for fronthaul mobile networks in the European project BlueSpace. My research interests comprise devices based on periodic structures and analog and digital optical communication systems including polarization diversity and space division multiplexing.
