Short CV

Eduardo Rodríguez Banga obtained the Degree of Telecommunication Engineer in 1990, and the PhD in Telecommunication Engineering in 1996, both from the Universidade de Vigo. He has been a Professor at the School of Telecommunication Engineering since 1991, as Associate Professor since 1997. His teaching activity has always been related to signal processing and analog and digital communications systems, having participated in different degrees taught at the School, including PhD and Master Programs. His research has been mainly related to signal processing, especially voice signal processing. His most recent research work is related to Speech Synthesis techniques and Statistical Machine Translation. He has been principal investigator in several national projects and has directed three doctoral theses (one co-directed). The results of his research have been published in prestigious international journals and conferences.
