About

Miguel Navarro-Cía received the M.Sci. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunication Engineering, and M.Res. degree in Introduction to Research in Communications from Universidad Pública de Navarra, Spain, in 2006, 2010 and 2007, respectively. From September 2006 to January 2010, and from February 2010 until March 2011, he worked as a Predoctoral Researcher (FPI fellowship recipient) and a Research & Teaching Assistant in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, Universidad Pública de Navarra, respectively. He was a Research Associate at Imperial College London and University College London in 2011 and 2012, respectively, and a Junior Research Fellow at Imperial College London from December 2012 until November 2015. Currently he is Birmingham Fellow in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Birmingham. He is also affiliated as a Visiting Researcher with Imperial College London and University College London. He was a Visiting Researcher with the University of Pennsylvania (for three months in 2010), with Imperial College London (2008, 2009, and 2010 for four, six, and three months, respectively), and with the Valencia Nanophotonics Technology Center (for two months in 2008). He was awarded the Best Doctoral Thesis in Basic Principles and Technologies of Information and Communications, and Applications corresponding to the XXXI Edition of Awards “Telecommunication Engineers” 2010 and the 2016 & 2012 CST University Publication Award to the best international journal publication using CST Microwave StudioTM and was a recipient of the 2011 Junior Research Raj Mittra Travel Grant. His current line of research focuses on plasmonics, TDS near-field imaging/spectroscopy, metamaterials, antennas and frequency selective surfaces at terahertz and infrared. Moving away from academia, Miguel Navarro-Cia's personal interests embrace travelling and chess. He is FIDE Master (FM) with 1 norm for International Master (IM) and among his achievements he was runner-up at the Spanish Chess Championship under 18 in 1999 and at the Spanish Team Chess Championship with Navarre in 2011. Also, one of his pupils won the Spanish Chess Championship under 10 in 2002.
