Biography

Ignacio Rodriguez Larrad (Oviedo, Spain, 1984) holds a Telecommunication Engineering degree (B.Sc.+M.Sc.) from University of Oviedo, Spain; a M.Sc. degree in Mobile Communications and a Ph.D. degree in Wireless Communications from Aalborg University, Denmark. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Wireless Communications for Industrial IoT at the same institution, where he is currently leading the 5G for Industries Research Group, coordinating the Industry 4.0 Experimental Research Activities at the Wireless Communication Networks Section, and the AAU 5G Smart Production Lab in collaboration with the Department of Materials and Production. He is also an External Research Engineer with Nokia Bell Labs, where he is involved in Industrial IoT research and the development of several 3GPP and ITU-R standards targeting 5G deployment scenarios.

His research interests are mainly related to radio propagation, channel modeling, radio network planning and optimization, ultra-reliable low-latency communications, low-power wide-area networks, non-terrestrial networks, and industrial IoT. He is a co-recipient of the IEEE VTS 2017 Neal Shepherd Memorial Best Propagation Paper Award, and in 2019 he was co-awarded with the 5G-prize by the Danish Energy Agency and the Danish Society of Telecommunication Engineers.
