He received the “Ingeniero de Telecomunicación” degree (with first-class honors) and the “Doctor Ingeniero de Telecomunicación” degree from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain, in 1993 and 1997, respectively.
In 1993 he joined the “Departamento de Comunicaciones”, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV), where he has been Full Professor on Transmission Lines and Microwaves since 2003. In 1995 and 1996, he was holding a Spanish Trainee position with the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), European Space Agency (ESA), Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where he was involved in the area of EM analysis and design of passive waveguide filters. Up to now, he has co-authored 10 chapters in technical textbooks, 80 papers in refereed international technical journals, and over 150 papers in international conference proceedings. His current research interests are focused on the analysis, synthesis and automated design of passive components and filters in several technologies, as well as on the simulation and measurement of high power effects.
In 2006, he co-funds the spin-off company Aurora Software and Testing (AURORASAT), where he is Senior Scientific Advisor. Since 2010, he is the President of the Executive Commission of Valencia Space Consortium (VSC), a public body for promoting and developing scientific, technological and dissemination activities on the Space sector.
