University of Barcelona (DPCB)
Marcial Clotet completed his Telecommunication Engineering degree in 2010 at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona). His thesis, advised by Enrique García-Berro and Jordi Portell, was focused on robust entropy coders exploring a better solution to the CCSDS 121.0 compression standard for space. He also completed his degree in Business Management and Administration from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) in 2011.
After working in the private sector and living in London, he returned to Barcelona to join the Gaia team at the UB in June 2011. He is the DPCB Quality Manager and Configuration Manager, and he also works as a software developer, mainly focused on DpcbTools.
Working in Gaia allows him to combine two passions: astronomy and computers.
