Diego Pablo Ruiz Padillo

Diego Pablo Ruiz Padillo received the M.S: and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Granada, Spain, in 1991 and 1995 respectively. He was a teacher in the University of Malaga in 1994-95 and he is currently associate professor at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Granada.

He has taught different courses in several degrees, among which are the Degrees in Physics, Telecommunications Engineering, Building Engineering, Architecture, Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology and Chemical Engineering. He also teaches in various master's degrees such as the Master of Acoustic Engineering (as a head teacher), Master in Occupational Risks, Master in Management and Integral Safety in Building and Master in Environmental Engineering. He is also coordinator of courses in the open training classroom of the University of Granada. He is interested and participates in several commissions and projects for the assessment of teaching quality and teaching innovation, and collaborates in science dissemination activities through the Scientific Culture Unit of the University of Granada.

His current research interest are environmental pollution and its modeling, especially acoustic and electromagnetic pollution, signal processing and energy efficiency in buildings. His main contributions have been in the development of signal processing algorithms for the automatic classification of radar objects, analysis and modeling of data coming from physical agents (noise and vibrations), development of indoor air quality indices and new technologies for pollution control. He currently coordinates the Laboratory of Acoustics and Environmental Physics within his research group and he has contributed to the creation of two technology-based companies on the above topics.
