Ramon Blanco-Gonzalo obtained his Degree in Telematics Engineering at University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) in 2009. He completed his Interuniversitary Master in Telematic Engineering in 2011, being his Master Thesis related to smart environments and biometrics. In February 2016 he finished his PhD, that is focused on analysing and improving the usability in biometric systems. Now he works at the University Group of Identification Technologies (GUTI), as a post-doc researcher. 

He is a member of the Spanish Standardization Subcommittee UNE/ CTN71 / SC37 "Biometric Identification" since 2013. Furthermore, he is part of the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC37 "Biometric Identification", being his work more active in WG3 "Biometric Data Interchange Formats" and in WG5 "Biometrics Evaluation", where he purposed a new International Standard on User-Interaction evaluation that is currently under NWI stage. He participated in the CEN/TC224/WG15 - "European Citizen Card".

My wish has come true because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone”
