Alfonso Bahillo received the titles of Telecommunications Engineer and PhD in Information Technology and Telecommunications from the University of Valladolid in 2006 and 2010, respectively. In 2014 he was certified by the Project Management Institute of the USA in the figure of Project Management Professional. From 2006 to 2010 he worked at CEDETEL as an associate researcher. From 2006 to 2011 he worked at the University of Valladolid as a part-time associate professor. From 2010 to 2012 he worked at LUCE Innovative Technologies having obtained the Torres Quevedo scholarship for PhDs in Young Innovative Companies. From 2012 to 2014 he worked as postdoc in the research group GCO of the University of Valladolid. From 2014 to 2017 he was hired by the University of Deusto as a post-doctoral researcher. He served as Director of DeustoTech, the University of Deusto’s research institute for the ICT, from 2017 to 2021. He started as associate professor at the University of Deusto from 2021 to 2022. Finally, he got an associate professor position at the University of Valladolid where he actually collaborates (and some of them lead) in regional, national and international research projects in the field of environmental intelligence and data sensor fusion for IoT, IoP and AI applications. He collaborates as a visiting professor in the Masters in Telecommunications of the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications of the Universidad del Cauca (Colombia) and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto. He has worked (leading some of them) in more than 30 projects and research contracts in all areas, regional, national and international. He is coauthor of 41 JCR articles, 9 book chapters, more than 35 papers at international conferences, and 4 national patents. His entire research career has focused on local positioning techniques, environmental intelligence, wireless networks, and numerical methods for modeling radioelectric propagation. In addition, he is a reviewer of important scientific journals such as IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications, IEEE Trans. on Instrumentation and Measurement, Elsevier Sensors and Actuators, IEEE Trans. on Vehicular Technology, and Wireless Personal Communications from Springer. He is also part of project evaluation panels in national and international project calls.
