About Me

Xavier Vilajosana, is principal investigator at the Wireless Networks (WiNe) research Lab at UOC and full professor at the Computer Science, Telecommunications and Multimedia department.  Xavier is also co-founder of Worldsensing, and OpenMote Technologies. Until March 2016 Xavier has been senior researcher at the HP R&D Labs. From January 2012 to January 2014, Xavier was visiting Professor at the University of California Berkeley holding a prestigious Fulbright fellowship. In 2008, he was visiting researcher of France Telecom R&D Labs, Paris. Xavier has been one of the main promoters of low power wireless technologies, co-leading the OpenWSN.org initiative at UC Berkeley, and promoting the use of low power wireless standards for the emerging Industrial Internet paradigm. He also contributed to the industrialization and introduction of Low Power Wide Area Networks to urban scenarios through Worldsensing. Xavier is author of different Internet Drafts and RFCs at the IETF, as part of his standardization activities for low power industrial networks. Xavier is contributing actively at the IETF 6TiSCH, 6Lo and ROLL Working Groups. Xavier holds more than 30 patents, more than 50 high impact journal publications and have contributed with several demos, tutorials and courses in the field of low power wireless networks. Finally Xavier is IEEE Senior Member and founding member and vocal of the IEEE Sensors Council in Spain.
