I'm a Senior Researcher at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Junior Faculty at Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). I'm the recipient of the RISC-V Educator of the Year Award 2019, for the advanced graduate course Processor Design I'm teaching at UPC, which is focused on the design of high-performance safety-critical systems. I'm the PI of the GPU4S project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) in which we are investigating the applicability of embedded GPUs in space.
I started my passion a year ago, I was supposed to do my radio-ham license but it has been postponed. So in the meantime instead of just waiting I started to learn about signal processing. I bought an SDR, built my antenna a (double cross), then I bought a yagi 70cm - 2m. I also designed my upconverter to be able to get a bunch of different ranges that my SDR would not catch. I'm now building a cubesat Simulator. Using a raspberry pi and an STM32.
