Bio

Juan M. Romero-Jerez has MSc degrees both in Telecommunication Engineering and in Mathematics from the University of Malaga, Spain, where he also obtained a PhD degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 2001. In 1996 he joined the Electronic Technology Department at the University of Málaga, where he is currently a Full Professor. He was a Visiting Associate Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University from September 2005 to February 2006, and also from September 2007 to February 2008 and from January 2016 to February 2016. He has participated in several research projects in the areas of packet radio transmission, multiple antennas, interference management and cellular networks.

His current research interest is in the area of wireless communications and, more specifically: wireless communications performance analysis, multipath fading, wireless channel modeling, diversity systems, smart antennas, MIMO performance and interference management.

Juan M. Romero-Jerez is a Senior Member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers). He was also an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications in 2015-2020.
