María del Carmen Carrión Pérez

Mª del Carmen Carrión Pérez received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Granada, Spain. She joined the University of Granada in 1979, where is now full professor.

Her teaching activity was initially involved with different subjects, outstanding among which are Numerical Methods in Physics Electricity and Magnetism, Experimental Techniques, Electromagnetic I and II for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year of the Bachelor's Degree in Physics. She has taught Physics II at the Degree in Architecture and Fundamentals of Physics for Engineering at the Engineering studies in Electronics and Telecommunications. Currently, she teaches General Physics I and II at the Degree of Physics. She has also been involved with different Post-Doctoral and Master courses. Currently, she taught Data Processing at the Master in Physics: Radiation, Nanotechnology, Particles and Astrophysics at the University of Granada.

Her research has been devoted to the processing of Electromagnetic Signals, with applications in several fields: radar, imaging, genome data and natural electromagnetic phenomena. Her works include contributions to the signal processing with Higher Order Statistics (HOS), Bayesian techniques (BT) and independent component analysis (ICA). At present, her research is concerned with the development of new signal processing methods applied to data from numerical and experimental studies for natural electromagnetic phenomena and environmental applications.

She has been principal researcher of four projects of the National Research Plan of Spain and one excellence project of the Andalusian Government. She has also been part of other four national research projects and has leaded two projects of the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation (AECI). Finally, it is worth mentioning that she has co-authored 56 international research papers and more that 85 conference papers, more than a half of them in international conferences.

Currently, she is the Dean of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Granada, Spain.
