Mónica F. Bugallo received her B.S., M.S, and Ph. D. degrees in electrical/computer  engineering from the University of A Coruña, Spain, in 1996, 1999, and 2001, respectively.

At the University of A Coruña she received the Award of Best Student and Best Ph.D. Dissertation. From 1998 to 2001 she was with the Department of Electronics and Systems at the same university, where she worked as research associate and was investigating interference cancellation applied to multiuser communication systems.

In 2002, she joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University where she is currently an Associate Professor. There she teaches courses related to digital communications, stochastic processes and information theory. She has also offered summer seminars at international institutions on statistical signal processing methods and advances and applications of particle filtering.

Her research interests are in the field of statistical signal processing, with emphasis on Bayesian analysis, sequential Monte Carlo methods, adaptive filtering, stochastic optimization, and their applications to different disciplines including multiuser communications, smart antenna systems, biomedicine, target tracking, vehicle positioning and navigation.

Dr. Bugallo has been member of the IEEE since 1999 (currently senior member) and has served on several technical committees of IEEE conferences and workshops. She has also been reviewer of many professional journals. She has received the award for Best Paper in the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine 2007 as coauthor of a paper entitled “Particle Filtering”.
