Short Biography

My name is Carles Fernandez Prades and I serve as a Senior Researcher at CTTC, a public research foundation located near Barcelona, Spain. My academic contributions can be checked at

My background is related to statistics, communication and navigation systems, and digital signal processing, but all the Computer Science stuff have been kind of self-taught. I started developing free and open source software a decade ago, mainly in the GNSS-SDR project (see, which I have been packaging and uploading for Debian since 2016 (see, with the help of the Debian Hamradio group.

I would like to become a Debian Maintainer in order to avoid being dependant on sponsors to upload new versions for the package I maintain, and probably to help others to do so.
