Dr. Manuel Fuentes received his degree in telecommunication engineering and a second degree in communication technologies, systems and networks from the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, Spain, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. He also obtained the Ph.D. degree in telecommunication engineering in 2017, receiving the honor distinction Cum Laude. From 2012 to 2017, he was with the the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM). He was a guest researcher at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in 2016. He participated in several R&D projects where his research interests were focused on interference mitigation and network planning activities between digital broadcasting and 4G (LTE) technologies. He also contributed actively to the ATSC 3.0 standardization process. In 2017 and 2018, Dr. Fuentes worked with the Samsung Electronics R&D UK team as a 5G research engineer and participated in the 5P-PPP phase-2 project 5G-Xcast, for the efficient delivery of broadcasting in 5G New Radio systems. Currently, he is again with UPV to continue his work in this project. His main research interests include physical layer procedures, innovative techniques in bit-interleaved coding and modulation such as non-uniform constellations or signal space diversity techniques, and multi-antenna communications.
