Teng Wang defends his thesis on self-adjusting and linearization techniques based on digital predistortion for communications in UAVs.
Teng Wang defended his thesis titled "A Fasto Engineering Approach High Efficiency Power Amplifier Linearization for Avionics Applications" on December 17 at EETAC, directed by Pere L. Gilabert (TSC-UPC). The thesis provides some guidelines for the design of linearizers based on digital predistortion (DPD) from several perspectives: y) improve the performance of open-loop DPD, ii) provide robustness and reduce the computational complexity of the parameter identification subsystem and, iii ) incorporation of machine learning techniques to favor the auto-tuning of power amplifiers and DPD linearizers with various degrees of freedom to be able to maximize energy efficiency while meeting linearity specifications.

María Masoliver Vila defends her thesis on neuronal coding of weak signals
María Masoliver defended her thesis supervised by Cristina Masoller on February 20 at the Terrassa Campus. Titled `` Neuronal encoding and transmission of weak periodic signals '', the thesis presents a temporal neuronal code based not on the time in which neurons trigger action potentials but on the relative time between them and demonstrates that it is a plausible mechanism for encode information from weak periodic external stimuli.

Department researchers lead rain data analysis from two centuries ago in Catalonia
M. Carmen Casas, Raúl Rodríguez and Alba Llabrés collaborate with the Meteorological Service of Catalonia and the UB to evaluate the quality of rainfall data since 1855, long before standardized measurements were taken at modern meteorological stations. The reliability of these data is key to understanding the effects of climate change in Catalonia.
