Breve CV


MIKEL CELAYA-ECHARRI (Member, IEEE) received the Management IT Technical Engineer Degree and MSc in Project Management from the Public University of Navarre (UPNA), in 2011 and 2015, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Engineering and Sciences from Tecnologico de Monterrey (TEC), Mexico, in 2022. From 2011 to 2014, he worked as R&D Engineer at Tafco Metawireless, Spain. He was Visiting Assistant Professor (2015-2017) and Teaching Assistant (2020-2022) in the Innovation in Smart Digital Technologies and Infrastructure Research Group at TEC, Mexico, where he developed his PhD thesis (2018-2022), under a joint Mexican Government-TEC doctoral fellowship funding, graduating with honors from the Engineering and Sciences PhD program. During 2023, he has been a Post-doctoral Researcher at UPNA where he is currently Tenure-Track Associate Professor in the Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics Department. During these years, the researcher has participated in several collaborative R&D projects, obtained under international competitive funding open calls, as a pre and postdoctoral fellow. The most relevant research projects are “Characterizing THz Band Communications for 6G and Beyond” in collaboration with the NYU Abu Dhabi, UAE, and UPNA in Spain; “CONDOR-CONNECTED” at UPNA in Spain and “THz propagation models for complex medical environments” in collaboration with the University of Birmingham, UK. He has published 50+ papers, mostly in top IEEE conferences and journals, giving rise to several recognitions, such as conferences best paper awards, the IEEE APS-URSI travel grant for Region 9 Students and the 2022 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Fellowship APSF. He was the IEEE Communication Society Monterrey Chapter Vice-chair (2020-2022) and the IEEE-HKN Lambda-Rho Chapter Vice-chair (2019-2022). His research trajectory shows a high level of interdisciplinary from software development to electromagnetic theory, considering current and future wireless communications, operating in wide frequency bands, extending from 5G to 6G and beyond. His research lines are focused on computational electromagnetics, wireless sensor networks, intelligent transportation systems, vehicular networks, project management and computer science.
