Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Carmen Mas Machuca

has been Professor of Communication Networks at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology since April 2023.

Carmen Mas Machuca received her Master’s degree in communications engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain in 1996, her PhD degree in engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in 2000, and her habilitation from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2017.

Since 2005 and prior to her appointment at UniBw M, Prof. Mas Machuca had been working at the Chair of Communication Networks at TUM. Her research interests cover several topics related to the optimal network planning taking reliability, resources, service requirements, security and/or cost into account. This planning is applied to single and multiple domains or technologies as well as to new solutions (e.g. QKD). Prof. Mas Machuca’s expertise covers both data and control planes. Her research is supported by several national (DFG, BMBF, DAAD) and EU funds (H2020, COST, ITN) like the currently ongoing BMBF funded project FRONT-RUNNER on reliable optical access networks.

The contribution of Prof. Carmen Mas Machuca in the research community is evident in more than 150 scientific publications in international journals and conferences. She is a guest editor for IEEE TNSM and IEEE COMMAG. Furthermore, she is also active in international conferences as chair, TPC co-chair, and TPC member. She has been an IEEE Senior Member since 2012.
