Antonio Fernández Anta is a Research Professor at IMDEA. Previously he was a Full Professor at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) and was on the Faculty of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), where we received an award for his research productivity.
Joerg Widmer is Research Professor at Institute IMDEA Networks in Madrid, Spain. His research focuses primarily on wireless networks, ranging from MAC layer design and interference management to future mobile network architectures. From 2005 to 2010, he was manager of the Ubiquitous Networking Research Group at DOCOMO Euro-Labs in Munich, Germany, leading several projects in the area of mobile and cellular networks. Before, he worked as post-doctoral researcher at EPFL, Switzerland on ultra-wide band communication and network coding.
Agustín Santos Méndez is a Post-Doc Researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute. He is working on projects related to social networks, machine learning, recommendation engines and distributed resource allocation. His early career included more than twenty years as CEO and co-founder of several start-up companies. He also has a strong background in the development of multinational projects in many different areas (compilers, distributed systems, simulation, system integration, etc. ). He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in 2013. His research interests are diverse covering areas such as game theory, design of mechanisms for resource allocation (fair allocation) and distributed systems. His main research interest is on decentralized resource allocation problems as they arise in large distributed computational systems.
Vincenzo Mancuso is Research Assistant Professor at IMDEA Networks Institute (Madrid, Spain) since September 2010. Previously, he build his research experience by working with University of Palermo (Italy), from which he received a Ph.D. in Electronic, Computer Science and Telecommunications in 2005, Rice University (Houston, TX, USA), and INRIA Sophia Antipolis (France).
Nicolas Nicolaou is a Marie Curie Fellow at IMDEA Networks Research Institute since December 2014. Previously he hold the position of Visiting Lecturer at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia ( 2011 -2013) and he served as a Special Scientist at the Cyprus University of Technology (2013-2014). He obtained a Ph.D. in 2011 and an M.S. in 2006 from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He obtained his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus in 2003. His main research interests focus on the analysis, design and implementation of practical, robust and consistent distributed and parallel algorithms, ad-hoc mobile and sensor networks and evaluation and exploitation of voting technologies. His work received funding from the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (2010-2011) and secured an Intra-European Marie-Curie Fellowship (2014-2016).
