Paula M. Castro received her MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering (2001) from the University of Vigo, Spain, and in Computer Engineering (2009) from the University of A Coruña, Spain, respectively. She got a Master degree on "Managing Abilities and Working Techniques” at the Complutense University of Madrid in 2000. She was with some private companies until 2001. Since 2002 she is with the Group of Electronic Technology and Communications (GTEC) in the Department of Computer Engineering at the University of A Coruña. From 2002 to 2006 she had the benefit of a FPI scholarship granted by the Spanish Government. She became Assistant Professor in 2006 and has been an Associate Professor since July 2011.

In 2006, she was with the Institute for Circuit Theory and Signal Processing of TUM (Germany) during four months. She has published fifteen papers in high-impact journals and more than fifty papers in other journals or international and national conferences. She has one national patent and is research member in more than fifty research projects and contracts with the regional and national governments. In 2007, she was a recipient of the Best Paper Award at the International ITG/IEEE Workshop on Smart Antennas in Vienna. She has also co-supervised three Master Thesis and three Doctoral Thesis.

Her main research interests are in designs of limited feedback and robust precoding techniques in MIMO wireless communication systems. Her research is currently devoted to inductive sensors for traffic applications.
