Short CV

Cristina López Bravo is an Engineer and PhD in Telecommunications Engineering from the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (2004). Since 2009, she is Associate Professor in the Department of Telematics Engineering at the Universidade de Vigo. Her interests are the evaluation of high performance networks, packet planning and Future Internet. In 2006, she made a stay at The Brooklyn Collegiate an Polytechnic Institute. In 2009, she is appointed EET Quality Coordinator and, in 2011, Assistant Director of Quality Coordination, a position she held until March 2015. In September 2016, she is appointed Director of the Graduate Studies Area of the Universidade de Vigo, a position she holds until May 2018. She has published 15 papers in international reference journals in the field of telecommunication (Computer Networks, IEEE Trans. on Com., IEEE Com. Magazine, IEEE/OSA Journal. of Optical Com. and Net. or IEEE Computer Magazine). She has also presented more than 25 papers in international conferences, mostly supported by IEEE. She has participated in several research projects: European, National R&D&I plan and regional. She has led two projects funded by the Ministry of Industry and three research contracts with Gradiant. She has participated as a member of the TPC of conferences, and in the review of articles in international journals. She has supervised one PhD Thesis and is currently supervising two others.
