I received the B.S. degree in Electronic engineering and MEng. degree in Engineering - Industrial Automation from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Manizales, Colombia, in 2005 and 2007 respectively. In 2010 I completed a dual PhD degree in Computer Science and Automatics from both the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain and the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. I also received the European Doctorate Mention from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. From 2010 to 2011 I was Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic and Biomedical Engineering, Universidad Antonio Nariño, Bogotá, Colombia. Since 2012 I am part of the Dpt. of Systems Engineering, Universidad de Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia; in December 2020 I was appointed as Full Professor. From March 2022, I joined the Dpt. of Signals, Systems and Radiocommunications at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain as Senior Researcher under a María Zambrano grant. I am part of the Applications of signal processing research group, of the same University. I am Senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
