Profile Summary

Carmen Vázquez is Full Professor at Electronics Technology Department of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), Spain. She is leader of Displays and Photonics Applications Group and Head of Master degrees on Photonics Engineering and on Electronics Systems Engineering. She was Vice-President of Postgraduate Studies, Quality and Infrastructures for 4 yrs and Electronics Technology Department Head for 3 yrs. She was Visiting Scientist at RLE in Massachusetts Institute of Technology for 1 yr, working on silicon photonics. She received her Ph.D. degree in 1995 from Polytechnic University of Madrid at Photonics Technology Department. In 1991, she graduated in Physics at Complutense University of Madrid and she got a fellowship at TELECOM (Denmark). She worked at Optoelectronics Division of Telefónica Investigación y Desarrollo. She has participated in European projects and networks in ESPRIT, RACE, IST and Horizon 2020 programs such as PLANET, OMAN, HEMIND, SAMPA, EPhoton/One+, BONE, she is currently leading BlueSpace (Building on the Use of Spatial Multiplexing 5G Networks Infrastructures and Showcasing Advanced technologies and Networking Capabilities), several national research projects and SINFOTON-CM consortium with 70 researchers. Her research interest focus on integrated optics, optical communications and instrumentation including: power over fiber, plastic optical fibers, broadband access networks and monitoring techniques, RoF systems, filters, fiber optic sensors and 5G & WDM networks. She is SPIE fellow and IEEE senior member, has published more than 200 scientific publications and holds 5 patents. She has supervised 7 PhD students. Her teaching activities include Optical Devices, Photonics Subsystems, Electronics Instrumentation. She gives short courses on Optical Fiber Sensors in Telecom Bretagne (France). She won the extraordinary doctorate prize of UPM in 1995, UC3M young professor prize 2004 and 2009, among the top best UC3M professors since 2012.
