Bio

Sérgio I. Lopes (BSc’04, MSc’09, PhD’14, PGdip’18) is currently a Visiting Professor at the Technology and Management School of the Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo (ESTG-IPVC) and researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações. He is graduated in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering, MSc in Biomedical Engineering, PhD in Electrical Engineering and has a Postgraduate diploma in Project Management. In 2007 he has been awarded the ESPA-Excellence in Signal Processing Award, given by Texas Instruments, and in 2015 he has been awarded the First Prize (Ph.D. category) of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge, a distinction that rewards research of practical utility. Since 2005, he has been working as an R&D Engineer in several research projects and co-authored more than 30 scientific publications. Recently he has joined the Expert Panel of the European Commission, being engaged in the evaluation of the call ICT-01-2016: Smart Cyber-Physical Systems. Currently, his research interests include embedded and cyber-physical systems, edge computing, digital signal processing, and indoor positioning. When not working he enjoys traveling, listening to music and play with analog synthesizers.
