Prof. Dr. Jaume Sanz Subirana received his Degree in Physics (Earth and Cosmos) in 1982 and his PhD in Physics (Galactic Dynamics) in 1987, both from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), Spain. Since 1983, he is teaching in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), BarcelonaTECH, in the Department of Mathematics. He is Tenure Full Professor (Catedrático de Universidad) of Mathematics and Senior GNSS Scientific Researcher.

His current research interests are in the area of GNSS data processing algorithms, GNSS ionospheric sounding, Satellite and Ground Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS and GBAS), and High Accuracy GNSS Navigation. This last topic is one of the main research topics of the gAGE/UPC group, where new algorithms for Wide Area High Accuracy Navigation are being developed and tested, leading to the Wide Area RTK (WARTK) and the Fast-Precise Point Positioning (Fast-PPP) techniques. Initially such techniques were targeting to GPS (2-frequency) and afterwards were extended to GALILEO and GPS-III (3-frequencies) systems.

He has published about 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals (with more than 30 of them in the 1rst quartile of JCR impact factor) and more than 200 works in meeting proceedings, with four best paper awards from the US Institute of Navigation. He is co-author of 5 patents on GNSS (2 international linked to WARTK and F-PPP techniques, with 12 associated entries) and four books on GNSS Data Processing. The last one, with two volumes, commissioned and published by the European Space Agency (ESA). He has been participating in about 90 R&D projects, being Principal Investigator in several of them.

As a result of the gAGE/UPC research group activities in GNSS, he co-founded the spin-off company gAGE- NAV S.L., in 2009.

He has been awarded by the UPC with the Recognition of Merits of Special Relevance in the last two evaluations of his Teaching Activity (Oct. 2008 - Sept. 2013 and Oct. 2013 - Sept. 2018).

He is Membership of the GNSS Scientific Advisory Group (GSAC) of the European Space Agency (ESA), the Senior Advisory Body to the Directorate of Navigation on all matters concerning scientific exploitation of navigation programs.
