Javier Perez-Mato was awarded his M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering in 2010 by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC). Prior to obtaining his M.Sc. he was granted a two-year scholarship (2007-2009) as an undergraduate research assistant at the Institute for Technological Development and Innovation in Communications (IDeTIC), where he now works as a full-time research engineer. For his M.Sc. thesis he designed a phase/amplitude calibration system for coupled-oscillator arrays, which are able to provide efficient beam-steering capabilities for radar and satellite communications.
Since February 2012 Javier holds a Master in Aerospace Science and Technology (MAST), given by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). As part of his master thesis for the MAST he developed an optical wireless interface for the ARINC 429 avionics bus, which is the predominant data bus used on most commercial and transport aircraft.
Javier is currently taking a Ph.D. program in Telecommunication and Cybernetics at the ULPGC while he continues with his research activities.
Active research fields:
