Daniel C. Dinis received the M.Sc. degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications from the University of Aveiro (Aveiro, Portugal), in 2013 and 2019, respectively, and an MBA from the Quantic School of Business and Technology (Washington DC, USA) in 2021.
From 2012 to 2014 he held different positions as a researcher at the Universities of Coimbra and Aveiro (Portugal). From 2014 to 2017, he was with the Instituto de Telecomunicações at the University of Aveiro, where he was involved in the design of fully digital RF transceivers and reconfigurable embedded systems. In 2017, he had a short stay at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (Cambridge, MA, USA) working on the same topic. In 2018 and 2019 he was Radar Front-End System Engineer at Thales Nederland B.V. (Hengelo, The Netherlands), where he worked in the development of front-end system models for different naval radar products. From 2019 to 2020 he was with Airbus Defence and Space (Portsmouth, UK) as Payload System Models and Digital Transformation Leader, working on the development of RF payload performance modelling tools for telecom satellites. Since January 2021, he is a Sr. Digital Signal Processing Engineer with Isotropic Systems(Reading, UK) working on RF/DSP modelling frameworks for a low-profile multiple-beam SatCom terminal.
He has authored/co-authored 20 papers in national/international journals and conference proceedings and co-authored 6 U.S. patents. He was awarded the Best Live Demo Award of the XIII “Jornadas sobre Sistemas Reconfiguráveis”, an honourable mention of the IBM Scientific Award 2018, and the Third Prize of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge in the Ph.D. category in 2020. He has also been a reviewer for different journals such as IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, International Journal of Microwave and Wireless, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II, Elsevier’s Microprocessors and Microsystems, and IEEE Access.
His current research interests include fully digital RF transceivers, software-defined radios, digital RF systems, digital signal processing for communication applications, satellite communications, and reconfigurable embedded systems.
