Bio

Pedro Vieira was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1974. He received the Eng., the MSc. and the PhD. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from IST/UL, Portugal, in 1997, 2003 and 2008, respectively.
Since 1997, he has been with the Electronics, Telecommunications and Computer Engineering Department in Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL), inside the Lisbon Polytechnic Institute (Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa (IPL)). He is currently an Adjunct Professor and a Researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), where he is researching aspects of wireless communications, including radio propagation, radio network planning and optimization and SON systems. He is also a senior engineer registered in the Portuguese Engineering Order (OE), and a OE telecommunications specialist, since 2008.
