Yuri Alvarez-Lopez (S’06 – M’09 – SM’15) received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunication engineering from the University of Oviedo, Gijón, Spain, in 2006 and 2009 (graduated with honors). He was a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University, USA, in 2006 and 2008; a Visiting Postdoc at the ALERT (Awareness and Localization of Explosive Related Threats) Center of Excellence, Northeastern University, Boston, USA, from 2011 to 2014; and a Visiting Postdoc at ELEDIA Research Center, Trento, Italy, in 2015. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Signal Theory and Communications research group (TSC-UNIOVI), University of Oviedo, Gijón, Spain.
His research interests include radar systems, antenna diagnostics and measurement techniques, wireless sensor networks for indoor location and tracking applications, inverse scattering and imaging techniques for non-destructive evaluation and security screening, and phaseless methods for antenna diagnostics and imaging.
He has co-authored over 70 JCR-indexed publications and 90 communications in conferences. He has also co-authored educational and teaching publications and leading projects in research innovation at the University of Oviedo, participating actively in workshops and activities of scientific dissemination.
Dr. Alvarez was the recipient of the 2011 Regional and National Awards to the Best Ph.D. Thesis on Telecommunication Engineering (category: security and defense). He received the Best Propagation Paper Award at the 2014 European Conference on Antennas and Propagation.
