Access Research Testbed for Next-Generation Wireless Networks (ORBIT), experience in using testing instrumentation
and electrical lab equipment, knowledge on Broadband Wireless technology.
Communication Skills: strong written and verbal communication skills as demonstrated when delivering weekly
presentations to the staff and students at WINLAB summer internship.
Leadership Skills: ability to motivate others to work hard and inspire them with responsibility and integrity. I attended
leadership workshops at MUN that were based on experiential learning and self-reflection techniques.
Project Management: ability to negotiate skillfully and present ideas in an interesting way with great attention to
Completed a project management training course where I learned the essential keys to plan a successful project.
- Capston Design Project: Photovoltaic System Improvement and Thermal Electric Dissipation:
Project Objectives: We ventured into improving the Photovoltaic efficiency of solar panels by
reducing the heat generated, transforming the wasted heat into usable electricity, and improving
the power output of the system in the inverter's transformer.
Overall reduction of wasted energy,
be it in solar or heat, and improving the system as a whole.
SDR in Orbit: Spectrum Sensing.
Multirate Signal Processing: conducted an in-depth research project in collaboration with a group
where we designed and applied a system and filters using Matlab codes.
Crisis Ministry of Mercer County: provided assistance in the food pantry to serve 30-40 unpriviledged households who
rely on the pantry each day.
New York Hall of Science: volunteered for IEEE at the World MakerFaire to teach visitors how to solder electrical
components onto breadboards to make basic circuits, which was sponsored by Google.

Spectrum sensing is the systematic scanning of the available radio frequency spectrum for areas of high usage.
project involves the use of Universal Software Radio Peripherals (USRPs) in ORBIT to detect which frequencies are in
use at any given time.
Using WINLAB's Wiserd framework and MATLAB/Octave for signal processing, we aim to
detect with optimal speed and efficiency the frequency of any signal transmitted from an unknown source.
Accomplishing this goal will help to identify available bands in the frequency spectrum, giving opportunities for more
SDR in ORBIT is a part of hardware accelerated spectrum sensing project where FFT and magnitude
spectrum computation was done on the FPGA.
The SDR used was an Avnet Zedboard - Xilinx Zynq - paired with
Analog Devices RF front end.
I learned VHDL and the implementation of state machines.
By the end of my internship, I
successfully designed and coded the Packet Fragmentation Unit which splits a long data packet from the FPGA into
smaller packets that can fit into an Ethernet frame.
Presented the Spectrum Sensing Project to Alon Cohen, the co-
founder of VocalTec Communications Inc.
