Enrique Villa obtained his PhD from Universidad de Cantabria in 2014, focused on the analysis and development of high sensitivity receivers at microwave frequencies.

He was a researcher in Universidad de Cantabria developing the 30- and 40-GHz band receivers for QUIJOTE experiment, installed at Teide Observatory. From 2018 to 2022, he was a reseracher in Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), where he was in charge of developing microwave detectors for biomedical applications. Since 2022, he is a researcher in Centro de Astrobiología (CSIC-INTA), involved in the developments of microwave circuits for superconducting Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs) for space and ground based instrumentation.

His experience encompasses the analysis and design of microwave circuits, as well as their characterization both at room and at cryogenic temperatures. He has coauthored around 50 peer-reviewed papers.
