Dr. Pedro Merino is an associate professor at Universidad de Málaga and belongs to the Mobile Networks and Software Reliability Team (MORSE). His research interests are foundations, tools, and applications of formal methods and protocol engineering for critical systems, particularly communications software. 


He leads several national research projects and contracts on software for mobile networks with international companies like OPTIMI-Ericsson (tools for quality of service on mobile phone), AT4 wireless (development of communication software for signaling protocols of new standards HSPA and LTE), or Agilent Technologies (techniques to optimize radio resources in mobile communications). 


He is the technical coordinator of project SAID (European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7) devoted to the demonstration of novel ICT technologies to implement decision support systems for water management.


He is the main researcher at Universidad de Málaga in the European projects Fed4FIRE and FLEX addressing the topic Future Internet Research and experimentation.
