Miriam Pablos was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1984. She received the B.S. degree in Telecommunication engineering and the Ph.D. degree from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 2010 and in 2016, respectively.
In 2009, she joined the Department of Signal Theory and Communications, UPC, involved in the ESA’s SMOS mission. As a degree student, her research has been mainly devoted to the thermal analysis and calibration of the L-band radiometer on-board SMOS satellite. During 2011, she was involved in teraherz imaging using interferometric radiometry at near-field for security applications. From 2012 to 2016, she was a member of the Barcelona Expert Centre (BEC), where she was working on remote sensing devoted to Earth observation, using L-band sensors such as SMOS, Aquarius or SMAP. In 2015, she was a visiting Ph.D. student with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, USA. Currently, she has a postdoctoral fellow at the Instituto Hispano-Luso de Investigaciones Agrarias (CIALE), University of Salamanca (USAL), Villamayor, Spain. Her research interests are: soil moisture retrieval and disaggregation algorithms, passive and active vegetation parameters, and agricultural drought monitoring.
