Short CV

Telecommunications Engineer (1991) and PhD in Telecommunications Engineering (1996) from the Universidade de Vigo. Between 1992 and 1996 he worked at the School of Telecommunications Engineering of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), where he teaches Room Acoustics, Noise Control and Musical Acoustics. Since 1996 he has been Professor at the Universidade de Vigo, where he teaches Architectural Acoustics, Advanced Acoustics (Degree in Telecommunication Engineering) and Professional Software Acoustics (Master in Industrial Mathematics). Between 2006 and 2011, he collaborated with the Instituto de Ciencias de la Construcción Eduardo Torroja in the programming of the official software tool for acoustic insulation calculation according to DB HR. Between 2007 and 2012, he collaborates as an auditor with the national accreditation body, ENAC, performing audits according to the scheme of the UNE EN 17025 standard to acoustics laboratories throughout the country. Currently his research interest is focused on the application of pattern recognition in the detection and classification of acoustic events, having a national patent on this subject. He actively collaborates with several companies, carrying out more than 20 contracts with private companies and public institutions. He is the author of more than 60 publications in international conferences and journals and has two patents and three doctoral theses directed. He is also a reviewer for international journals such as JASA, Applied Acoustics and Journal of Building Acoustics.
