Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on microwave engineering, particularly numerical techniques for electromagnetics and the analysis and design of high-gain lens antennas, frequency selective surfaces, artificial periodic electromagnetic structures with applications on antennas (high-gain arrays and leaky-wave) and medical imaging and focusing systems.


C. Mateo-Segura was born in Valencia, Spain, in 1981. She received the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunications engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain, in 2006 and the Ph.D. degree, jointly awarded between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, U.K., in 2010. In 2006, she joined the Security and Defence Department of Indra Systems, Madrid, Spain, as a Junior Engineer. In 2009, she was a Research Associate in the Wireless Communications Research Group, Loughborough University, U.K. In December 2010, she joined the Antennas & Electromagnetics Research Group, Queen Mary, University of London, as a Research Associate where she worked on the electromagnetic modelling and design of novel metamaterial antennas for high power applications. She is currently an Assistant Professor with the Institute of Sensor, Signals and Systems, in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, U.K. Her research interests include the analysis and design of lens antennas, frequency selective surfaces, artificial periodic electromagnetic structures with applications on high-gain array antennas and medical imaging and focusing systems, transformation electromagnetic and numerical techniques for electromagnetics.


Dr. Mateo-Segura was awarded a prize studentship from the Edinburgh Research Partnership and the Joint Research Institute for Integrated Systems to join the RF and Microwave group at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. in 2006 and an Industrial Secondment grant by the Royal Academy of Engineering to join SELEX ES in 2013.
