I am Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Autonoma of Madrid (UAM) since January 2014. My work is focused in carbon materials and I cooperate with several research lines, namely, separation processes with ionic liquids, chloromethanes removal from gas streams by hydrodechlorination, water purification by photocatalysis and synthesis of carbon materials from biomass. I have co-authored more than 40 publications in SCI journals and 2 patents. I have presented more than 100 national and international communications.
My research aims at understanding the likely consequences of human activities such as nitrogen deposition and climate change on ecosystem structure and functioning and the link between them. I am also interested in how these undesired negative impacts might affect key ecosystem services such as multitrophic biodiversity and above-ground and below-ground carbon storage.
Juan C. San Miguel received the degree in Electrical Engineering (5-years program "Ingeniero de Telecomunicación" degree) in 2006, the Master's degree in Multimedia Signal processing in 2008 and the PhD in Computer Science and Telecommunication in 2011, all at Universidad Autónoma of Madrid (UAM). Since 2015, he is interim associate professor at UAM. He has been undergraduate fellow (2004-2005), scholarship researcher (2005-2008), teaching/research assistant (2008-2012) and assistant professor (2012-2015). He also was on a postdoctoral Marie Curie IAPP fellowship at Queen Mary University of London (UK) in 2013-2014. He was an academic visitor at the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China) in 2015 and 2016.
He has participated as lecturer in the summer school for video surveillance at UAM (editions 2008 and 2010), training courses for the Spanish law enforcement agency (Guardia Civil) in 2013 and 2015, and one tutorial at the FUSION 2016 conference. He has given invited talks at the X Conference on Science and Technology ESPE 2015 (Quito, Ecuador), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2015 and 2016 (Beijing, China). He also received two awards in 2013 for the Best PhD thesis in multimedia (runner up) (Electrical engineering Spanish association) and in 2014 for the best PhD thesis (School of Electrical engineering, UAM).
He also serves as a reviewer for several international journals (IEEE TIP, IEEE CSVT, IEEE TSP, Elsevier IMAVIS, ESWA, Springer JRTIP, MVAP,…) and conferences (IEEE ICIP, IEEE WACV, IEEE AVSS, ACM Multimedia…). He has co-authored more than 40 journal and conference papers. His current research interests are in the areas of visual sensor networks and performance evaluation, oriented to target detection, tracking and activity understanding.
