Dr. Pascual Muñoz received Ph.D. degree from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) on 2003. He is a Full Professor at the Departamento de Comunicaciones, UPV, and a researcher at ITEAM. Dr. Muñoz has consolidated a research line, started in 2005, on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) in a technology agnostic fashion, where PICs are designed in the best suited technology (Silicon-On-Insulator, Indium Phosphide, Silica on Silicon, Silicon Nitride) for each application. He has been involved in several EC funded projects, being coordinator for integration on InP within the NoE IST-EPIXNET. He has published over 25 papers in international refereed journals and conferences and is a member of the Technical Programme Committee of the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC). Dr. Muñoz received the VPI Speed Up Photonics Award in 2002 for innovative Fourier optics AWG with multimode interference (MMI) couplers modeling. He was also granted the IEEE/LEOS Graduate Student Fellowship Program in 2002. He received the doctorate prize from UPV in 2006. From his research line he co-founded the UPV Spin-off company VLC-Photonics in 2011, where the PIC design know-how, expertise and tools have been transferred. Dr. Muñoz is a Member of IEEE and OSA.
