Juan Merlano Duncan obtained his E. Engineering diploma from Universidad del Norte, Barranquilla, Colombia in 2004.  He obtained the M.Sc and Ph.D diplomas from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain in 2009 and 2012 respectively.  At UPC he was responsible for the design and implementation of a radar system known as SABRINA, which was the first ground based bistatic radar receiver using spaceborne platforms such as ERS-2, ENVISAT, and TerraSAR-X as opportunity transmitters (C and X bands). He was also in charge of the implementation of a ground-based array of transmitters which was able to monitor land subsidence with sub-wavelength precision. These two implementations involved FPGA design, embedded programming and analog RF/Microwave design. In 2013 he joined the Institute National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) in Montreal, Canada, to work as a Research Assistant in the design and implementation of cognitive radio networks by means of software development and FPGA programming.  His research interests are wireless communications, remote sensing, distributed systems, frequency distribution and carrier synchronization systems, Software Defined Radios (SDR) and embedded systems.

He will work on the SATSENT (SATellite Sensor NETworks for spectrum monitoring) project in collaboration with Prof. Ottersten and Dr. Symeon Chatzinotas.
