Hello, I assume you were looking for me ...

The purpose of this webpage is to provide an overview of my profile and its potential for your company. Thanks to my PhD studies, I have an extensive background in Massive Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications in a variety of protocols: GSM, GPRS, EDGE, LTE and 802.11ah. Part of my research have been featured in the prestigious MIT Technology Review. In addition, I have a double degree both in Málaga University - Spain - and Aalborg University. I strongly believe that, the combination between problem oriented based learning in Aalborg and the wide theoretical background in Málaga, has boosted my engineering skills to face real life problems. Further, during my Master in Aalborg University I was able to get a deep understanding of WiFi 802.11 and RFID GEN2 protocols. I am also an innovative person always trying to find better ways of solving a problem.

My PhD on Reliable Radio Access Protocols for Massive M2M

Research Summary


  • Most likely to become the first person with a PhD on Massive Machine-to-Machine Communications in Europe.
  • My research on GSM/GPRS (2G & 2.5G) as dedicated M2M network has been featured by the prestigious MIT Technology Review.
  • Part of the same work has been patented (J.No. 2012-521/10-0291).
  • Based on my work for Reliable LTE Access, I was invited to an electronic letter on M2M.
  • In addition to publishing in the main conferences in wireless communications (Globecom, ICC), I have publications in the several protocols such as GPRS, LTE and 802.11ah.

The Protocol Hunter

My Master in Mobile Communications at Aalborg University


During my education at AAU I gained experience with 802.11b/g (WiFi) and Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) protocols.

At AAU, working with 3 different teams has boosted my project management and leadership skills. My supervisors (Rasmus Krigslund, Petar Popovski and Patrick Eggers) can attest my hard work and commitment.

My former supervisors, Rasmus Krigslund, Petar Popovski and Patrick Eggers, can attest my hard work and commitment.

I really enjoyed my master experience because I was involved with realistic projects. In fact my Master Thesis was made in a new RFID research area: Object Orientation with commercial passive UHF tags. This area of research leaded to innovative applications such as using RFID medical purposes.

My Experience as Research Assistant / Student Helper

Short Description

For my work at Aalborg University as Research Assistant / Student Helper, I just had a short description: “Work with the 802.11g/g MAC Layer and create a Secondary Communication Channel”. I managed (with other two excellent partners) to find an efficient way to create the required link. I was also able to reverse engineering some hidden parameters in the Wireless Card in order to succeed in our work. In just three months a full proof of concept demonstration was developed (as shown in video on the left).

The results of this work was published in MILCOM 2011 (Military Conference in the United States of America). Further, this work lead to a startup company now named RESEIWE, which provides ultra-reliable data links for UAV. During this period I have also navigated a little bit the Inmarsat protocol (Satellite communications protocol) for GateHouse.

My Sport Achievements

Since I was twelve until my second year of career I practiced sailing. I was enrolled in the elite program since I was fourteen in the Optimist class, followed by the 420 class. This experience taught me in the pursue of my goals. As Juvenal said: mens sana in corpore sano, or in other words, a sound mind in a sound body.

I have more than 30 sports achievements but these are the more relevant ones:

  • Spain Championship 2001: Second Classified.
  • Spain Championship 1999: Sixth Classified from more than 110 participants. I classified for the European Championship.
  • Andalucia Championship 2004: Second position.
  • Andalucia Championship 2002: Second position.
  • Andalucia Championship 2000: Second position.
  • Spring Race 1999: First position.
  • Winter Race 1998: First position.
  • Winter Race 1997: First position.
Mens Sana in Corpore Sano: I strongly believe that sports help to improve myself.
