KEYWORDS
SKILLS
I\'m passionate about learning, creative, with a highly analytical thinking, organized, dependable and responsible.

I have over 20 years of experience in the areas of power electronics, digital audio, biomedical instrumentation, embedded design, discrete analog design, system design, and software design. I have worked as an external consultant for ADX Research (Schaumburg, IL, USA), Aircraft Medical (UK), Lucesco Lighting (CA, USA) and JCM Technologies (Spain), among others, and as part of their staff at Motorola (Schaumburg, IL, USA), Massana Technologies (Spain), Sharp Electronics (Spain), SEMA Group (Spain), and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), among others. I have three issued US patents and five technical publications. I hold a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, IL.

I use Matlab/Simulink, Mathematica, C#, .NET, and C++ on a daily basis, and have also worked with PHP, Javascript, JQuery, HTML, CSS, MySQL, Silverlight, and many others.
PROJECT HISTORY
(Available upon request.)
TIME AND SPATIAL FLEXIBILITY
I'm available from right now, to work remotely from Barcelona, Spain.
I might consider working at the employer's premises, if needed, but only within Europe, and for a maximum of 6 months.
