Carlos Carreras received the Engineering Degree in 1986 from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (U.P.M.) and the M.S. degree in 1989 from the University of Texas at Austin. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1993 also from U.P.M. From 1987 to 1991 he worked at Honeywell Bull and Schlumberger Well Services. Since 1991, he is with the Department of Electrical Engeneering (E.T.S.I.T.) at the U.P.M., where he currently is an Associate Professor. He has actively participated in a number of national and international research projects. His current research interests are in the areas of architecture and electronic design of high-performance computing systems, CAD for system design, synthesis and modeling, hardware-software co-design, and noise and power estimation techniques.
