Pedro M. Crespo is a Professor at TECNUN, the Technological Campus of University of Navarra, San Sebastian, Spain, and Head of the Mathematical Principles of Information and Communications Group. In 1978 he received the engineering degree in Telecommunications from Universidad Politécnica de Barcelona, Spain, in 1978, and the M. Sc. in Applied Mathematics and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California, CA USA, in 1983 and 1984, respectively. After finishing his Ph.D. degree, he joined the Signal Processing Research Group at Bell Communications Research (Bellcore), NJ, USA. At the time, Bellcore was the world leading Research Institution in Telecommunication, providing R&D to the Bell Operating Companies. As a member of the Technical Staff he worked as a researcher in the general area of data communication and signal processing. His research focused on various topics related to mobile communications, optical communications and digital subscriber line communications (ADSL). He actively contributed to the definition and development of the first ADSL prototypes. In 1992 Bellcore was one of the few USA Labs that had an ADSL working prototype. In May 1992 he joined as a Senior Researcher, the R&D center Telefónica Investigación y Desarrollo, Madrid, Spain. Among other responsibilities, he was in charge of the planning and technical management for the European Research projects (RACE, EURESCOM, ACTS) in which Telefonica participated. In particular, he was involved in the definition and implementation of the standard H.324 for video telephony for applications in mobile networks. During the period of 1999 to 2002, Dr. Crespo was the technical director of the Spanish telecommunication operator Jazztel, an alternative telecommunications access provider in the Iberian Peninsula. In September 1999, he joined the R&D center CEIT, San Sebastian, Spain, as the Head of the Mathematical Principles of Information and Communications Group. In 2003 he became a full Professor at University of Navarra, and from 2007 until 2016, he was the director of the Electronics and Communications department at CEIT. He combined his work at CEIT with his role as professor at the university, teaching courses in the area of Information Theory, Signal Processing and Data Communications. Pedro Crespo is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and he is a Recipient of Bell Communication Research's Award of Excellence. Professor Crespo holds seven patents in the areas of digital subscriber lines and wireless communications and is author of more than 180 international conference papers and journals.
