Miguel Beruete received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunication engineering from the Public University of Navarre (UPNA), Pamplona, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. From 2002 to 2007, he was a Pre-Doctoral Researcher, under the FPI Fellowship, with the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, UPNA. In 2005, he joined the University of Seville, Seville, Spain, as a Visiting Researcher, as a part of his Ph.D. research. 

From 2007 to 2009, he was with the Electronics Department, Technological Center CEMITEC, Noáin, Spain, where he was involved in the development of high-frequency commu- nication devices. 

In 2009, he joined TERALAB, UPNA, as a Post-Doctoral Researcher of the Consolider EMET Engineering Metamaterials Project. From 2012 to 2016, he was a Ramon y Cajal Fellow Researcher with UPNA, where he became an UPNA Distinguished Researcher. Since 2017, he has been an Associate Professor with the Antennas Group-TERALAB, UPNA, where he supervises several Ph.D. and M.Sc. theses and leads the TERALAB Laboratory. He has authored more than 130 indexed articles, 5 book chapters, and more than 300 conference communications (several invited). He holds three patents. His current research interests include terahertz sensing and communication technology, including metamaterials, plasmonics, extraordinary transmission structures, leaky-wave antennas, nanoantennas, and, in general, quasi-optical devices.

Currently his h index is h = 31, with over 3500 citations to his works, which places him as one of the most relevant researchers at the state level in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. 

In addition, he has been distinguished with several awards throughout his career:

  1. UPNA Research Award of the Exact, Biological, Medical and Technological Sciences Areas, for the best scientific contribution made during the years 2017 and 2018 for the article: B. Orazbayev, N.
