"Ana Collado (Santander, Spain) received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain, in 2002 and 2007 respectively. In 2002, she worked as a microwave engineer at the University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, where she studied the uncertainty in the noise figure measurements of MMIC low noise amplifiers. In 2007, she was also involved in the design of low phase-noise MMIC VCOs at the University of Cantabria. Since 2007, she is a research associate at Centre Tecnologic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC), Barcelona, Spain. During her Ph.D. studies she was a recipient of a Fellowship from the Ministry of Science and Innovation (MEC), Spain. She was a finalist in the student paper competition of the 2007 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2007). She is a Management Committee Member of the EU COST Action IC0803 RF/Microwave Communications Subsystems for Emerging Wireless Technologies (RFCSET), where she also serves as the Grant Holder Representative. She is an Associate Editor for the Radioengineering Journal. She is involved in a number of technical program committees and serves as a reviewer for several journals including IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, and IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. She was the co-recipient of the EUCAP 2010 Best Student Paper Award and the ACES 2010 2nd Best Student Paper Award. She is a Marie Curie Fellow of the FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IAPP 251557 project Symbiotic Wireless Autonomous Powered system (SWAP). She is the Technical Program Chair of the IEEE RFID Technologies and Applications 2011 (RFID-TA) Conference and the Technical Program Chair of the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Workshop Series (IMWS 2011) on “Millimeter Wave Integration Technologies”.
