Short bio

Ignacio Llatser Martí was born in Vinaròs (Spain) in 1984. In 2008, he graduated with a double M.S. degree in Telecommunication Engineering and Computer Science from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), after completing his master thesis at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. In January 2014, he obtained a PhD at the Nanonetworking Center in Catalunya of UPC, under the supervision of Dr. Eduard Alarcón and Dr. Albert Cabellos-Aparicio.

Ignacio is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications of the Technische Universität Dresden. His research interests lie in the fields of nanonetworks, molecular communication, graphene-enabled wireless communications, vehicular networks and autonomous driving.
