MY ROUTE:

The Straight Road

MY WORK LIFE:

PhD Candidate

foundation interest 1 interest 2

My work allows me to combine the foundation of PROBLEM-SOLVING and the interests of ENGINEERING and TECHNOLOGY.


DAY IN AND DAY OUT

I can either go to the office or to the lab, depending on the project stage. If the project is on its initial stage I go to the office, do some planning, simulations, results analysis...If it is on the final stage I go to the lab and do some antenna fabrication or measurements. Then I analyze the results and compare them with the simulated ones. I check the discrepancies, find the sources of error and iterate the process until the desired performance is achieved.
