Miguel Ángel Maté González

At present he is Ramón y Cajal researcher at the Higher Polytechnic School of Ávila belonging to the University of Salamanca (USAL). He is Technical Engineer in Topography (2012 – USAL), graduated in Geoinformation and Geomatics Engineering (2023 – USAL), with an Official University Master’s Degree in Cartographic Geotechnologies in Engineering and Architecture (2013 – USAL), and another Official University Master’s Degree in Secondary Education ( 2017) by the Camilo José Cela University. After this, he obtained the PhD in Geotechnologies Applied to Construction, Energy and Industry in 2017 (USAL), with a CUM LAUDE mention, and the Extraordinary Doctorate Award (2018). Before the current position, he worked at the Complutense University of Madrid and the USAL with different research contracts, at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy) thanks to its own H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European research project, and at the Polytechnic University of Madrid as Assistant Doctor Professor in the Higher Technical School of Engineers in Topography, Geodesy and Cartography. In addition to this, his training has been complemented by different research stays in other centers of recognized national and international prestige. His professional, academic and research experience revolves around the application of new geomatic technologies for the study, valuation, dissemination, and conservation of cultural heritage. As a member of the GESyP (UPM) and TIDOP (USAL) Research Groups, he is co-author of more than 54 scientific publications in impact journals, with the equivalent of a six-year period of research. Linked to these works, other merits should be highlighted, such as: participation and direction as Main Research of numerous national and international research projects, collaboration in the organization of scientific activities (such as the CIPA Ávila International Symposium or courses and seminars of dissemination in the week of science), or the review of manuscripts in different international journals of impact, as well as the edition of different special issues.

Research interests:

  • Cartographic Geotechnologies applied to the Historic and Archaeologic Heritage and other related disciplines for the documentation, analysis and diffusion
  • Adaptation of non-destructive methodologies in different fields of the engineering to be implemented in Archaeology
  • Implementation of photogrammetric and 3D laser techniques for the documentation of close objects in complex scenes
