Joaquín Míguez obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering from University of A Coruña (Galicia - Spain) in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Late in 2000, he joined the Department of Electronics and Systems, University of A Coruña, where he became an associate professor in July 2003. From April 2001 through December 2001, he was a visiting scholar in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. In 2004, he joined the Department of Signal Theory and Communications of University Carlos III (Madrid - Spain), also as an associate professor. His research interests are in the fields of Bayesian analysis and computational methods (sequential Monte Carlo, adaptive sampling, MCMC, ...), nonlinear dynamical systems (chaos, synchronization and control, stochastic filtering, ...), stochastic optimization and applications in the fields of digital communications, transportation, positioning, navigation and target tracking. Dr. Míguez has co-authored over 30 journal papers in top journals in the fields of signal processing, communications, mathematical physics and applied mathematics, as well as over 70 conference papers published in proceedings of international conferences. He is a co-recipient of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award 2007.
