I am a passionate researcher focused on Connected Vehicles and Mobility. Currently I work for FICOSA, where I help designing, developing, and demonstrating the future technologies that will make the connected car a reality. My work is focused on V2X (vehicle to anything) and C-V2X/5G. As a Product Engineer I’m mainly in charge of software development, but also responsible of the integration of all the pieces that form the whole system. My main task is to develop and deliver demonstrators to show our clients the potential on these new technologies.
The 4th of July of 2016 I finished my PhD in Computer Science by the Universitat Politécnica de València(UPV), in Spain. During my PhD, I collaborated with researchers from Äalto University (in Helsinki) and from Universidade da Beira Interior (Portugal). My research interests include vehicular networks (VN) and smartphone integration in VN; Internet of Things (IoT), and its application to industry and efficiency; Cellular networks such as 4G/5G; Delay Tolerant Networks, and any other technology that may provide pervasive and resilient communications.
In the past, my research activities involved a diverse set of tasks ranging from network simulations and modeling in C++ to Android Java and C# application development. Currently at FICOSA I mostly create software in C and C++ for embedded devices running Yocto Linux.
I want my work to have an impact in the life of people. I envision a world where technology can bring more efficient and 0 causalities transportation systems. I’m always open to collaboration opportunities and looking forward for new professional challenges.
During my time at the UPV I was also a part-time lab instructor. I supervised lab sessions at the course “Design and Configuration of Local Area Networks”. In this course students learned about LAN and WLAN technologies and how to configure and scale them. The course includes network simulations using Omnet++ and experiments with real hardware like switches and access points. I really love teaching, it is one of the most rewarding experience of the world. To improve my teaching skills, in 2015, I took the “Programa de Acogida Universitaria” (Welcome University Program), an introduction to teaching and pedagogy for new university teachers/researchers.
During my free time I like playing and coaching rugby. I have played rugby in Spain, Finland and Portugal. In 2013, my team, the UPVRC, won the regional league in Valencia, Spain. I have helped coaching kids under 14.
