Doctor by the Universidad de Oviedo with the thesis Método de reconstrucción de fuentes para el diagnóstico y caracterización de sistemas radiantes 2009. Supervised by Dr. Fernando Las Heras Andrés.

Dr. Yuri Álvarez López received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunication engineering from the University of Oviedo (Spain), in 2006 and 2009, respectively, both with Honors. He was a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University, Syracuse, USA, in 2008; a Visiting Postdoc at the Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems (CenSSIS) ALERT Center of Excellence, Northeastern University, Boston, USA, from 2011 to 2014; and a Visiting Postdoc at ELEDIA Research Center, Trento, Italy, in 2015. He has been with the Signal Theory and Communications research group of the University of Oviedo (Gijón, Spain) since 2006, where he is currently an Associate Professor. He has co-authored over 100 publications in indexed scientific journals in the areas of antennas and propagation, electromagnetic imaging, nondestructive testing, and location and tracking systems. He has been Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement. His research interests include antenna diagnostics, antenna measurement techniques, methods and techniques for indoor location based on Internet-of-Things networks, inverse scattering and imaging techniques for nondestructive testing applications, and phaseless methods for antenna diagnostics and imaging. Dr. Alvarez was the recipient of the 2011 Regional and National Awards for the Best Ph.D. Thesis on Telecommunication Engineering (category: security and defense), the Best Propagation Paper Award at the 2014 European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, and the Idea of the Year at the 2019 GALILEO Masters Awards, European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GSA).
