AGUSTÍN MARTÍN MUÑOZ was born in 1965 in Madrid (Spain) and obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physics from the Complutense University of Madrid in 1995. He started his research career dealing with the development of numerical methods in electromagnetics to study the interaction of electromagnetic radiation, especially in the radiofrequency range, with different objects as satellites or biological tissues. In 1996 he received the “Young Scientist Award” from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI).
Since 2008, after the reorganisation of the Physical Science and Technology area of CSIC, his research interests are focused on the analysis of possible vulnerabilities of radiofrequency identification systems (RFID) and the study of techniques of side-channel attacks to cryptographic devices. He has published 34 research papers in international scientific journals and more than 80 contributions to peer reviewed workshops and conferences. He has participated in 15 research projects and 45 R&D and technological support contracts, has taught several courses and seminars, and is co-author of two books, two book chapters, and 3 patents. Dr. Martín Muñoz is member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
