Andrés Alayón Glazunov was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1969. He received the M.Sc. (Engineer-Researcher) degree in physical engineering from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (Polytech), Russia, in 1994, the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Lund University, Sweden, in 2009, and the Docent (habilitation) qualification in antenna systems from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2017. From 1996-2005, he held various research and specialist positions in the Telecom industry, e.g., Ericsson Research, Telia Research, and TeliaSonera, all in Sweden. From 2001-2005, he was the Swedish delegate to the European Cost Action 273 and was active in the Handset Antenna Working Group. He has been one of the pioneers in establishing OTA measurement techniques.
He has contributed to and initiated various European research projects, e.g., currently, the is3DMIMO, the WAVECOMBE and the Build-Wise projects under the auspices of the H2020 European Research and Innovation programme. Dr. Glazunov has also contributed to the international 3GPP and the ITU standardization bodies. From 2009-2010, he held a Marie Curie Senior Research Fellowship at the Centre for Wireless Network Design, University of Bedfordshire, U.K. From 2010-2014, he held a post-doctoral position with the Electromagnetic Engineering Laboratory, KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. From 2014-2018, he held an Assistant Professor position at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Dr. Glazunov is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands and he is also affiliated with Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. At the University of Twente he is leading the Radio, Propagation and Antenna Systems research group, while at Chalmers he is leading the OTA Characterization of Antenna Systems research area. He is the author of more than hundred scientific and technical publications. He is the co-author and co-editor of the text book titled LTE-Advanced and Next Generation Wireless Networks – Channel Modelling and Propagation (Wiley, 2012). His current research interests include, but are not limited to MIMO antenna systems, electromagnetic theory, fundamental limitations on antenna-channel interactions, radio propagation channel measurements, modelling and simulations, and the OTA characterization of antenna systems and wireless devices.
