| Cecilia Gimeno was born in Zaragoza, Spain. She received the B.Sc. degree in 2009 and the M.Sc. degree in 2010, and the Ph.D degree in 2014 all in Physics from the University of Zaragoza, Spain.
From 2007 to 2015 she was a member of the Group of Electronic Design (GDE-I3A) at the Aragon Institute for Engineering Research of the University of Zaragoza and she was involved in the design of high-speed front-ends for plastic optical fiber applications being involved in several prototyping fabrication and testing. In 2013 she was a visiting Ph.D. researcher with Firecomms Ltd. Cork, Ireland, in design of a DC to 50 Mb/s fiber optic receiver and design of a silicon receiver for FTTH communication links. She is currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the ICTEAM in the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), where she is involved in the design of an energy-efficient ultra-wide band transceiver for chip-to-chip wireless communications in advanced FDSOI technology. She has authored or coauthored over 60 technical papers and international conference contributions as well as 20 teaching innovation contributions. Her research interests include analog and RF design in advanced CMOS technology, high-frequency signal processing, CMOS integrated optical receivers and optical fiber communications, wireless transceivers for chip-to-chip communications and ultra-wide band.
