PhD, Software Development


Pedro Crespo-Valero is a senior member of the R&D software team at Z43.



Pedro completed his MSc degree in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Communications and High Frequency Technologies in 2001 at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain. In 2002, he joined the group of Prof. Mosig at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, where in 2007, he earned his PhD in the domain of Computational Electromagnetics and Microwave Engineering. During this time, he participated in several projects with various European industries and research institutions, such as the European Space Agency (ESA). These collaborations have led to several significant contributions, including a dedicated EM solver for microwave circuits for space applications called MAMBO and the design of novel high frequency circuits with RF-MEMS.

Pedro joined Z43 in 2007 as part of a small group working to implement SEMCAD X, SPEAG's first simulation framework. He started taking responsibility for the development of the EM computational dosimetry modules and oversaw cooperation with the associated standardization institutions. Since then, he has actively contributed, as a full-stack developer, to the implementation of a wide ecosystem of software packages for simulation and measurement systems to assist the telecommunications and medical industries, including Sim4Life, IMAnalytics, and cDASY6 5G. In 2018, he joined the IT'IS software group as part of a team building the open-source framework of SIM-CORE, the modeling and simulation core of the project Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Pedro is fluent in Spanish, English, French, C++, and Python, and is somewhat less fluent in German and Javascript. He occasionally plays piano or classical guitar; loves having a good Kaffee&Kuechen with his friends, and does some running to clear his mind.
