Marcela M. Gómez received her B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering from Universidad del Azuay, in Cuenca, Ecuador in 2010; program from which she graduated with honors. In 2011, she obtained a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue her Master’s degree in Telecommunications at the University of Pittsburgh, completing this program in December 2012.
She is currently a Doctoral Student in the Telecommunications and Networking program of the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh. She started her doctoral studies in January 2013, and since then she has been appointed as a Graduate Student Assistant, a Graduate Student Researcher, and more recently, during the Summer of 2015, as a Teaching Fellow. Her research interests include Wireless Network Virtualization, Spectrum Sharing and Trading, and Policy and Economics of Telecommunications.
Research Workshop: Spectrum Management
Sunday, 17 January 2016
Spectrum Sharing and Wireless Network Virtualization have been explored as methods to achieve spectrum efficiency, increase network capacity and, overall, to address the existing spectrum scarcity problems. This work aims at exploring the link between these two topics, by specifically placing virtualization as a technology that
can render spectrum sharing schemes feasible.
No complete analysis can be made without taking into account three important axes: technology, policy and economics. In this light, in order to explore how virtualization enables spectrum sharing, flexibility is studied as a common attribute, due to the characteristics it presents regarding the three preceding axes.
By determining how spectrum sharing, wireless virtualization and flexibility tie together, ground can be laid toward exploring further opportunities that would enhance spectrum usage, making it possible for this resource to foster these days’ ever-increasing demand.
