Prof. Dr. Octavian Adrian Postolache (M’99, SM’2006) graduated in Electrical Engineering at the Gh. Asachi Technical University of Iasi, Romania, in 1992 and he received the PhD degree in 1999 from the same university, and university habilitation in 2016 from Instituto Superior Tecnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal. In the period 1992-2000 he served as assistant professor at Technical University of Iasi. In 2000 he became principal researcher of Instituto de Telecomunicações where he is now Senior Researcher. He served as invited professor at EST/IPS Setubal, Portugal between 2001 and 2012 when he joined Instituto Universitario de Lisboa/ ISCTE-IUL Lisbon where he is currently A. Professor. His fields of interests are smart sensors for biomedical and environmental applications, pervasive sensing and computing, wireless sensor networks, signal processing with application in biomedical and telecommunications, non-destructive testing and diagnosis based on eddy currents smart sensors, computational intelligence with application in automated measurement systems. He was principal researcher of different projects including EHR-Physio regarding the implementation of Electronic Health Records for Physiotherapy and he is currently principal researcher of TailorPhy project Smart Sensors and Tailored Environments for Physiotheraphy.He served as technical principal researcher in projects such Crack Project related non-destructive testing of conductive materials. He is vice-director of Instituto de Telecomunicações/ISCTE-IUL delegation, director of PhD program Science and Communication Technologies at ISCTE-IUL, and he was leader of several collaboration projects between the Instituto de Telecomunicaçoes and the industry such as Home TeleCare project with Portuguese Telecommunication Agency for Innovation (PT Inovação), Integrated Spectrum Monitoring project with National Communication Agency (ANACOM). He is active member of national and international research teams involved in Portuguese and EU and International projects. Dr. Postolache is author and co-author of 10 patents, 11 books, 21 book chapters, more than 400 papers in international journals and indexed conferences with peer review. He is Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society (IMS), international chair of IEEE IMS TC-13 Wireless and Telecommunications in Measurements and he is current chair of IEEE IMS Portugal Chapter. As current chair of IEEE IMS PT, he organized many technical activities including international workshops and conferences. He is member of steering committee of Medical Measurement and Application Symposium. He was the founder of a new international conference in the field of sensors and instrumentation for IoT technical sponsored by Instrumentation and Measurement Society that was successfully organized in 2018 and 2019 (ISSI 2018, Shanghai, ISSI 2019, Lisbon). He is Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal, IEEE Transaction on Instrumentation and Measurement. He served as general chair of different IEEE conferences or IEEE IMS technical sponsored conference such as MeMeA 2014- Lisbon, ICST 2014- Liverpool, ICST 2017 –Sydney, ICST2018-Limirich, and ICST2019-Sydney. He received IEEE best reviewer and the best associate editor in 2011, 2013 and 2017, and other awards related to his research activity at different international forums.
