Biography

Maria Alonso-delPino received her degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain in 2008; her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, USA in 2008; and her Ph.D. degree in Signal Theory and Communications/Electrical Engineering from UPC in 2013.

From 2014 to 2015 she was as a postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Delft (TUDelft), Delft, Netherlands. From 2015 to 2016, she was a NASA postdoctoral fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, CA, USA. From 20216 to 2020, she was a member of the technical staff at the Sub-millimeter Wave Advanced Technology group of JPL/NASA. Since 2020, she is an assistant professor at TUDelft. Her interests include millimeter and submillimeter-wave heterodyne and direct detection receiver technologies, antennas, quasi-optical systems.

Dr. Alonso-delPino was the recipient of the Outstanding Reviewer Award of the IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology in 2013 and the co-recipient of the 2014 IEEE Terahertz Science and Technology Best Paper Award.
