Francisco Valera

Francisco Valera"I studied Telecommunications Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and before finishing the race was already very interested in everything that had to do with the evolution of Internet technology at that time was still peeling. The draft order career I realized within a research group, working in European projects and since then have continued in the same vein enjoying first-person research and how enriching it is to exchange experiences with researchers from other countries. In my spare time I like to practice all kinds of sports, football, spinning, paddle tennis, squash. I love traveling, reading and consume all kinds of television series.".
