Silvia Díaz Lucas obtained the title of Telecommunication Engineer in 2002, and the PhD in 2007, both at the Public University of Navarre.
During 2003 and 2004, she made Pre-doctoral research stays in the Photonics group of University of Cantabria, Santander, working in signal processing with fiber optics sensor networks. In 2006, she did another pre-doctoral research stay at the École Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne, Switzerland, studying different procedures and strategies to extend the operating range of a distributed Brillouin sensor. In 2009, she made a post-doctoral research stay at the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials of the University of Bath, United Kingdom, working on the development of lasers and amplified photonic crystal fiber structures, through the use of distributed amplification.
She is an associated researcher from 2010 in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the Public University of Navarre. She is teaching subjects related with Electronics and Projects. She has been Deputy Director of this Department from 2010 to 2011. She has two five-year teaching periods, and she has authored more than 50 publications in journals and conferences, both national and international, related with fiber optics networks, lasers and sensors. She has two six-year research periods.
She is carrying out research from 2002 in the group Comunicaciones Ópticas y Aplicaciones Electrónicas of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Public University of Navarre.
Currently, she is Deputy Director of the School of Industrial and Telecommunications Engineering (ETSIIT), being responsible of the Bachelor in Telecommunications Technologies Engineering. She is also a member of the Board of the ETSIIT.
