Joaquin PerezJoaquin Perez  is with the Department of Computer Science of the University of Valencia,  Spain  as Adjunct Professor of Telematics Engineering. He is also a vocational education teacher, at Generalitat Valenciana in the area of Computer Systems and Applications, since 2017.

He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunications engineering from Universitat Politécnica de Valencia, Spain, in 2004 and 2009, respectively.

From 2003 to 2009, he was a Research Assistant at the Valencia Nanophotonics Technology Center (NTC) of the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain working in wireless photonic integration communication systems and ultra wideband radio over fibre systems. In 2010, he joined the Optical Communications Research group, Northumbria Communications Research Lab at Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, United Kingdom, as a Research Fellow.

Since 2014, he joined  with the Photonics Research Labs (PRL) at ITEAM research institute of the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the Juan de la Cierva Fellowship programme.  Since 2017 he collaborates with the PRL as a non-assigned post-doctoral researcher. During April and June 2017 he was invited as a guest researcher at Chalmers University, Göteborg, Sweden.

Since 2018 he is with the Department of Computer Science of the Universitat de Valencia as Adjunct Professor of Telematics Engineering, in topics such as Mathematical foundations of communications, Telecommunication systems foundations or Computer architecture and networks.

His research interests include photonics subsystems, electrical and electronic communications sub-systems, microwave photonics, quantum optics, secure systems. optical wireless communications, photonics integrated systems and optical access networks. He is open also for collaboration at any interesting research topic on telecomms, electrical engineering, optics physics and others.

He has participated in several international research projects, e.g. IST-UROOF, ICT-UCELLS, EU COST action IC0802 and IC1101, and published more than 60 works in recognized international journals and conferences.
