Prof. Angel Lozano received the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1994 and 1998, respectively. Contemporarily, between 1996 and 1998, he also worked for Rockwell Semiconductor Systems (now Conexant Systems) in San Diego, USA. In 1999 he joined Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies, now Alcatel-Lucent) in Holmdel, USA, where he was a member of the Wireless Communications Research Department until 2008. Between 2005 and 2008 he was also an Adj. Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University.

Prof. Lozano is a Fellow of the IEEE. He is an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (since 2011) and the Journal of Communications & Networks (since 2010), a former editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications (1999-2009), has guest-edited various journal special issues, and is actively involved in committees and conference organization tasks for the IEEE. In particular, he is the vice-chair of the IEEE Communication Theory Technical Committee since 2010 and was elected to the Board of Governors of the IEEE Communications Society for the term 2012-2014. He has further participated in standardization activities for 3GPP, 3GPP2, IEEE 802.20 and the IETF.

Prof. Lozano has authored over 90 technical journal and conference papers, as well as one monograph, holds 15 patents, and has contributed to several books. His papers have received two awards: the best paper at the 2006 IEEE Int’l Symposium on Spread Spectrum Techniques & Applications, and the Stephen O. Rice prize to the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2008. He also received the Bell Labs President's Gold Award in 2002.

He has held visiting appointments at the University of Cambridge (UK), the University of Texas at Austin (USA), at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel), at the University of Minnesota (USA), at Stanford University (USA), and at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Chile).
