Biography

Nina Skorin-Kapov is an Associate Professor at the University Center of Defence, CUD, (adscribed to the Technical University of Cartagena), San Javier Air Force Base, Spain. She is also affiliated with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb as external Associate Professor. Her general research interests include optimization and planning in telecommunications, in particular in wide-area optical networks.

Nina received the Dipl.-Ing. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunications from the University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. From 2003-2013, she worked at the Department of Telecommunications at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb, as a Research Assistant (2003-8), as Assistant Professor (2008-2012), and as Associate Professor (2012-2013). She was on leave completing a one year Research Fellowship at Télécom ParisTech - École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France in academic year 2006/7, and various short-term research stays at The Technical University of Cartagena (UPCT), Spain, in April-May 2009, May 2010, February-May 2011 and March-June 2012.

Professor Skorin-Kapov has participated in several international (H2020 METRO-HAUL, Erasmus+ IN4WOOD-Industry 4.0, FP7 BONE, FP7 ePhotone/One+, COST Actions 291 and IC0806) and national (ONOFRE-2, ONOFRE, Analysis of the performance and design of broadband networks) research projects. She is a Spanish Management Committee Member in the COST Action RECODIS  and previously led projects SAFE (A Security Planning Framework for Optical Networks) funded by Unity through Knowledge Fund (UKF), Croatia,  and French-Croatian Cogito project HONeDT.

She has authored more than 50 scientific publications in international journals and conferences, three of which received best paper awards, including the Fabio Neri Best Paper Award for 2013 of the Journal Optical Switching and Networking. In 2008, she received the Croatian Annual National Award for Science (for junior researchers) in the field of technical sciences. She also received the Annual Award for Young Scientists and Artists awarded by The Society of University Teachers, Scholars and Other Scientists – Zagreb in 2006 and the Vera Johanides award from the Croatian Academy of Engineering (HATZ) for year 2011. In 2011, she was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine (Croatian Edition) with portrait article themed “The New, Better Generation has Arrived”.

Nina is an associate editor of the OSA/IEEE Journal of Optical Communications and Networking, and previously served on the editorial board of CIT Journal of Computing and Information Technology from 2011-2015. She has served on Technical Program Comittees of numerous international conferences, including ONDM, Networks, IEEE Globecom, IEEE ICC, ACP and IEEE HPSR,  and was TCP co-chair of international conference ONDM 2016. She has reviewed project proposals for the Croatian science Foundation and the Engineering Research Council of Canada, and served on the Advisory Board of the Institute of Telemedicine of the Republic of Croatia from 2009-2012.
