M. Eulàlia Parés (Barcelona, 1980) holds a M.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2004 and a MSc in Meteorology and Climatology from the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2005. In 2008, she received a Master Degree in Airborne Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (IG). Since January 2021 she holds a PhD in Aerospatial Science and Technology. In the thesis, she developed a the basis of the CTTC’s testbed GEMMA and a new algorithm for optimal estimation for redundant navigation systems.

At the CTTC, she is a researcher in the GEON department. On the general level, Ms. Parés research aims at contributing to the adoption of the geodetic method for navigation and to its application/validation to INS/GNSS navigation. The geodetic method is based on optimal estimation criteria, on quality assessment, be it by internal or ex-ternal means, on rigorous mathematical modeling, on the use of su ciently redundant data and on the use of su ciently heterogeneous data. General improvement of the navigational precision, accuracy and reliability is a consequence thereof. This is fully inline with the department research lines defined in the CTTC strategic plan, in which she activelly participated.

(1) precise and robust integrated navigation,
(2) precise and robust kinematic positioning and trajectory determination,
(4) new platforms and paradigms for high-resolution geodata acquisition,
(5) precise and robust sensor orientation and calibration.

More specifically, she is currently working in the development of new positioning algorithms -from GNSS to INS based multi-sensor systems, focused on urban and indor mapping applications. She is the main responsible of the GEMMA testbed development, and the Crowd-sourced Air Quality Monitoring invention. She is also co-inventor of the iPOLE granted patent, recently transfered to the GEOKINESIA spin-off, of which she is one of the promoters. She is co-author of 4 journal papers and more than 25 conference papers.

She is highly motivated for training and disseminating her knowledge: She has supervised and co-supervised 2 TFG thesis and 2 TFM thesis related to those applications, organized and imparted 4 specialized courses on INS, she collaborated with the EETAC drone’s master, imparting lessons and supervising student. She is invited to several divulgation talks at Generalitat de Catalunya, Ajuntament de Castelldefels and Aula Senior. Last but not least, she has been deeply involved in the CTTC workshop organization, whose main purpose is to increase cooperation oportunities within the CTTC.

Regarding participation in research projects, she is one of the promoters of the European project IOPES and she is already its main coordinator. She has been WP leader of 3 other european projects, and has participated in more than 7 of those. She has been also involved in industrial, regional and national projects, being those more than 20 in total.
