I am a Professor in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, which I joined in 2006, a Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study, member of the Center for Wireless Information Technology, and a consultant for the research center CTTC-HK. I received the Electrical Engineering degree and the Ph.D. degree from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1998 and 2003, respectively. I have held several visiting research appointments, namely, at King's College London (KCL), London, UK; Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona; Stanford University, Stanford, CA; Telecommunications Technological Center of Catalonia (CTTC), Barcelona; Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden; University of Rome "La Sapienza", Rome, Italy; and Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.

My current research interests include financial engineering and big data systems using tools from convex optimization theory, signal processing, game theory, and variational inequality theory.

I am an IEEE Fellow and, among others, I have been awarded with the 2004/06 Fulbright Research Fellowship and the 2004 Young Author Best Paper Award by the IEEE Signal Processing Society.

I have served as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Guest Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine 2010 Special Issue on “Convex Optimization for Signal Processing,” Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications 2008 Special Issue on “Game Theory in Communication Systems,” the Lead Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications 2007 Special Issue on “Optimization of MIMO Transceivers for Realistic Communication Networks.” I serve on the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Committee on Signal Processing for Communications (SPCOM). I was the General Co-Chair of the 2009 IEEE Workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing (CAMSAP).
