I am mostly focusing on SiPM detectirs and readout electronics (ASIC design) in worldwide collaborations and projects (SENSE, FAST, CERN LHCb, CTA among others). I am really interested in fast timing applications: direct (3D) PET and high luminosity colliders.
I am working at the Institute of Cosmos Science from University of Barcelona (ICCUB, icc.ub.edu)
The ICCUB and CERN organize a high-quality course on solid-state radiation detectors combined with laboratories, social events, a poster session and presentations from industry. The course covers from physics of interaction of radiation with matter, sensors and readout electronics to state-of-the-art reviews on radiation detection technologies and their applications.
The event will take place in Barcelona, from the 2nd to the 6th July 2018, and it is aimed at PhD students, researchers and industry professionals, working in related fields: particle detectors, astronomy, space, medical imaging, scientific instrumentation, material analysis, neutron imaging, process monitoring and control, etc.
I received a BSc degree in electronics engineering from University Ramon Llull, Spain in 1998, and a PhD degree in electronics from University of Barcelona, Spain in 2008. I am currently the coordinator of the technology unit of the ICCUB, Spain. My research activity is in the area of mixed signals circuits for high energy physics, astrophysics experiments and medical imaging. Particularly, I am
interested in ASIC design for fast photodetector readout and front end electronics. I have authored or coauthored more than 60 papers related to these subjects and several patents.
