Dr José Miguel JUAN ZORNOZA
To act as Ionospheric Model Expert and Project Expert, is teaching at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in Barcelona, Spain, in the Department of Physics since 1988. He has received the accreditation for Full Professor by the Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) in 2011 and by the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU) in 2010.
Along with his colleague Dr J. Sanz he created the Research Group of in the UPC (gAGE/UPC) in 1988. His current research interests are in the area of GNSS data processing Algorithms for High Accuracy GNSS Navigation and GNSS ionospheric sounding, as well as Satellite and Ground Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS and GBAS). In the context of the gAGE/UPC group, he has been developing and testing new algorithms for Wide Area High Accuracy Navigation, initially with GPS (2-frequency) and afterwards with GALILEO and GPS-III (3-frequencies) systems, which lead to the Wide Area RTK (WARTK) and the Fast-Precise Point Positioning (Fast-PPP) techniques.
He has published about 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals (with more than 20 in the 1rst quartile of JCR impact factor) and about 200 works in meeting proceedings, with four best paper awards from the US Institute of Navigation, having a citation h-index of 21. He is co-author of 5 patents on GNSS (2 international linked to WARTK and F-PPP techniques, with 12 associated entries) and four books on GNSS Data Processing. The last one, with two volumes, commissioned and published by the European Space Agency (ESA). He has been participating in more than 70 R&D projects, being Principal Investigator in several of them.
