Dr Martha Suárez, the new president of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) has appointed Dr Martha Suárez as its new president. In her previous role, Suárez was the general director of The National Spectrum Agency (ANE) in Colombia.

After receiving a degree as Electronics Engineer from the Universidad Industrial de Santander in 2004, Suárez received her master’s degree in high frequency communication systems from the University of Marne-la-Vallee, France in 2006 and her PhD from the University Paris-Est in 2009. Suárez has been a vocal proponent of efficient spectrum utilisation in regional and global forums including CITEL (the Inter-American Telecommunication Commission), the ITU, and other multi-lateral organisations.

“With dynamic spectrum access playing such a crucial role in enabling next-generation wireless technologies, I’m looking forward to working with the DSA members, governments, and regulators around the world to enable more efficient spectrum utilisation,” said Suárez. “Spectrum is a key income for wireless communication systems and there are many opportunities that arise when considering flexible access to this resource. We need to create new solutions and innovate to close the digital gap and connect the unconnected. Dynamic spectrum definitely has a lot to contribute.”

“With so much focus from government, industry, and academia on enabling shared access to spectrum, this is an exciting time for the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance to have a change in leadership, and we welcome Dr Suárez’s guidance during this important time for spectrum management. In addition to leading a top spectrum regulator in Latin America, Dr Suárez is an expert in dynamic spectrum access and cognitive radio systems. Dr Suárez has long been a leading voice on the need for policies enabling more efficient spectrum utilisation, and how this is vital for enabling next-generation wireless technologies. We strongly believe that her leadership will be invaluable for the progress of the DSA,” said Paul Garnett, chairman of the DSA Board.
