My name is Andrés Alayón Glazunov (IEEE SM’11) and I was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1969. I received the M.Sc. (Engineer-Researcher) degree in physical engineering from Saint Petersburg State Polytechnical University, Saint Petersburg, Russia, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Lund University, Lund, Sweden, from 1988 to 1994 and 2006 to 2009, respectively. Currently, I'm an Assistant Professor at the Signals and Systems Department, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. From 1996 to 2001, I was a member of the Research Staff at Ericsson Research, Ericsson AB, Kista, Sweden, where I conducted research in the areas of advanced receiver performance evaluation for UMTS, applied electromagnetic wave propagation and stochastic channel modeling for wireless communications systems. During this period, I also contributed to the European COST Action 259 project in the directional channel modelling working group. In 2001,I joined Telia Research, Sweden, as a Senior Research Engineer. Later, starting in 2003, I became Senior Specialist in Antenna Systems and Propagation at the newly formed Telia Sonera Sweden, where I pursued research in smart antennas and MIMO, network optimization and over-the-air (OTA) performance evaluation of handsets and their impact on wireless network performance. From 2001 to 2005, I was the Swedish delegate to the European COST Action 273 and was active in the handset antenna working group. I have contributed to establishing OTA measurement techniques. I have contributed to the EVEREST and NEWCOM European research projects as well as to the 3GPP and the ITU standardization bodies. From 2009 to 2010, I held a Marie Curie Senior Research Fellowship at the Centre for Wireless Network Design (CWiND), University of Bedfordshire, UK. From 2010 to 2014, I was a postdoc (researcher and teacher) in the Department of Electromagnetic Engineering, KTH The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. I am the author of various scientific and technical publications. I am the coauthor and co-editor of LTE-Advanced and Next Generation Wireless Networks (Wiley 2012). My current research interests include, but are not limited to, electromagnetic theory, statistical signal processing, fundamental limitations on antenna-channel interactions, RF propagation channel measurements, modeling and simulations for network optimization, and OTA testing of wireless devices.
