Professor Celia López Ongil

Celia López Ongil is an Industrial Engineer from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (1995) and a PhD in Industrial Engineering from the same university (2000). In 1998 she joined the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid as an assistant professor. She is a Full Professor at the Department of Electronic Technology since 2010.

During these 22 years of service at the university, he has taught 25 subjects in 4 Engineering degrees, 7 Engineering Bachelor´s degrees and 3 Engineering Master's degrees, in the Department of Electronic Technology. He has also taught in non-regulated teaching courses in the field of digital microelectronics. He has supervised more than 20 end-of-degree bachelor and master's projects.

Her research has been framed in the line of Robust Circuits for Space applications, during the completion of his doctoral thesis at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and in his postdoctoral stage at the Carlos III University of Madrid. Her work has been focused on the search for new design techniques and the generation of HW / SW tools to ensure the quality and reliability of the microelectronic circuits. Along these lines, she has directed two doctoral theses, has published 19 articles in scientific journals and 90 contributions at international conferences. In addition, she has participated in 8 research projects financed in public calls, being a principal investigator in 2 of them; and its participation in several space missions (ASCAT-METOP, SADE-ROSETTA, DS-EXOMARS20) should be highlighted. Since 2016, her research has focused on cyber-physical systems, dedicated to detecting, preventing and fighting violence against women. The UC3M4Safety multidisciplinary team, made up of researchers from Signal Theory and Communications, Telematics, Mechanics, Gender Studies and Electronic Technology, proposes to use technology to protect women at risk of sexual or gender-based violence. Along these lines, the team has been a semifinalist in the international XPRIZE Women's Safety competition and has won the Vodafone Foundation Award in 2019.

In parallel, she has carried out management tasks, being Deputy Director of Teaching Organization (2011-13) and Secretary (2013-17) of the Department of Electronic Technology, Director of the AIRBUS-UC3M Mixed Technology Activities Center (2013-16) and elected Member of various governing bodies of the University. Currently she is Deputy Vice Chancellor for Internationalization with the International Relations and European University Chancellor.
