Joaquin Aparicio Sosa
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Digital Signal Processing and Image Analysis group (DSB), where I work on the project Infrastructure-less indoor positioning in 3D, sponsored by the Norwegian Research Council.
My main research interests are related to acoustic technologies, and more specifically their use for indoor localization systems, as well as underwater environments.
I obtained my PhD at the University of Alcalá (Spain), working on underwater acoustic propagation modeling and localization systems for underwater vehicles. I was later awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (Yokohama, Japan), where I worked for three years. The aim of my project there was to evaluate and improve underwater acoustic communications for multiple users, focusing on cooperative missions of underwater vehicles.
The goal of my current project at UiO is to establish a phased array air sonar platform using key insights from radar, sonar and medical imaging technology, to be used for indoor localization applications. This project is developed together with the industrial partners Sonitor Technologies, MazeMap, and the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI).
In addition to my main academic topics, throughout these years I studied different sources of ocean noise, and I became interested on how anthropogenic sources could affect marine life. Extending that topic to a broader field, I am learning now on how to use acoustics to assess and evaluate biodiversity and the quality of different habitats.
I am a member of IEEE, IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, the Acoustical Society of America, and NAS (Norsk Akustisk Selskap). In addition, I also serve as a Technical Program Committee member for the International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN), and as a reviewer for the Seminario Anual de Automática, Electrónica Industrial e Instrumentación (SAAEI, an annual Spanish symposium).
