About Me

I am currently working with Embedded Software Group of TU Delft. My research is emphasized on communication methods of IoT Networks with a final goal of enabling battery-less operation.
I have 3 years of total (international) experience obtained from both industrial and research organizations. My software skills are gained through the projects during my studies and internships, also by personal interest and exploration.
I am comfortable with software development, better in C languages or Java. I have experience with MATLAB and various other tools for network simulation and analysis.
