Short Biography

Dr. Laura Conde-Canencia received Engg. Degree from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain, in 2000, and Ph.D. from Telecom Bretagne, France, in 2004. Her PhD thesis dealt with spectral-efficiency maximization in high-performance digital communication systems. Particularly, she investigated the association of high-rate m-binary turbo-codes to high-order modulation schemes and analyzed performance estimation of bit-interleaved turbo-coded modulation. In 2004, she joined Universidad San Pablo-CEU, in Madrid (Spain), as an Assistant Professor in Telecommunication Engineering. Since 2006, she is with the Lab-STICC Laboratory in Université de Bretagne Sud (UBS), France, where she is currently an Associate Professor. She is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of UBS and a member of the International Relations Advisory Board where she helps in developing strategies for the internationalization of UBS. She has worked on PN sequence synchronization for Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers with funding from the European GNSS Supervisory Authority. Since 2008, her research has mainly focused on error correcting codes for digital communications: Turbo-codes, binary and non-binary LDPC codes and Cortex codes. From 2013 she has extended her research topics to neural coding and neuromorphic design. She has published over thirty papers and holds three patents on NB-LDPC decoding. Her team received financial support from France Brevets, a French national investment fund dedicated to international patent development and licensing. Since 2014, she holds the scientific excellence fellowship (French national PES) and since 2016 she is an elected member in the “Design and Implementation of Signal Processing Systems” Technical Committee (IEEE Signal Processing Society). In 2017-2018, she was a Fulbright Visiting Research Scholar in the Laboratory for Robust Information Systems(LORIS) at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). During this year she was co-funded by the European Union with a PRESTIGE grant award or Marie Curie Fellowship.
