altNina Skorin-Kapov was born in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1981 and grew up in Vancouver, Canada and Long Island, New York, USA. In 1996 she returned to Croatia and received her Dipl-Ing and PhD degrees in Telecommunications from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb, Croatia in 2003 and 2006, respectively.  In 2006-7, she completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Télécom ParisTech (formerly Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, ENST) in Paris, France. In 2008, she joined the Department of Telecommunications at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2012. In February 2013, she joined the Centro Universitario de la Defensa (CUD) de San Javier (University Centre of Defence at the Spanish Air Force Academy) in Santiago de la Ribera, Murcia, Spain as an Associate Professor, currently teaching in the area of Computer Science. Her main research interests include optimization and planning in telecommunications, particularly in wide-area optical networks.

Below you can find a list of recent publications since joining CUD in February 2013.
