Integrating innovative TECHnologies along the value Chain to improve small ruminant welfARE management

TechCare’s People: Joan Oliver!

Hello! I am Joan. I received my bachelor’s Science degree in Physical Science in 1984 and the Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1990 from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Since 1991 I am professor in the Microelectronics and Electronics Systems Department (MISE) at the UAB. I have been associate researcher at the Integrated Circuits and Systems Design Group of the Barcelona Institute of Microelectronics (CNM-CSIC) from 1987 to 2008. I am also co-founder of Alternative Energy Innovations SL (AEinnova), a spin-off company of the MISE Department, whose interest is the development of self-powered products using energy harvesting techniques. My research has focused on the design and test of integrated circuits, analog integrated circuits, and methodologies for hardware/software platforms. Currently, I work in the areas of integration of sensors in embedded systems and IoT platforms, and the self-powering of embedded systems using energy-harvesting techniques. I have recently worked in the project BIOSENS whose main interest is the development of wireless sensors nodes for ruminal monitoring in ruminants. I also bring my knowledge for the implementation of sensors in the project TechCare.
