Pau Closas received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. (cum-laude) in Electrical Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 2003 and 2009, respectively. In 2003, he joined the Department of Signal Theory and Communications, UPC, as a Research Assistant. In 2005, he received a Spanish Ministry of Education Ph.D. grant. During 2008 he was Research Visitor at the Stony Brook University (SBU), New York, USA.
In September 2009 he joined the CTTC, where he currently holds a position as a Research Associate in the Communications Subsystems Area and coordinates the Positioning Systems research line. His primary areas of interest include statistical and array signal processing, estimation and detection theory, Bayesian filtering, robustness analysis, and game theory, with applications to positioning systems, wireless sensor networks, and mathematical biology.
He has 9 years of experience in projects funded by the European Commission, Spanish and Catalan Governments, as well as the European Space Agency (ESA) in both technical and managerial duties. He has been involved in projects of the USA's National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Natural Science Foundation (NNSF) of China. He has collaborated with scientific institutions such as CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas), ICC (Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya), and ICS (Institut Català de la Salut)
Pau Closas is member of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the Institute of Navigation (ION) since 2005, 2006 and 2009, respectively. In 2011, he has been involved in the organizing committees of EUSIPCO, IEEE IMWS, and IEEE RFID-TA conferences. He is currently serving as Publicity Chair for the European Wireless 2014 conference.
