April 2009 - Present Electronics Engineering, ICT Development, GNU Radio, Communication Systems The goal of my thesis research was to build an open-source tool, useful for the student, for evaluating the Bit Error Rates of the digital modulations (in real-time also) over the wired (AWGN) and the wireless channels both modeled in a mathematical way combining Python with the GNU Radio platform. Altough I finished my thesis research a long time ago, I still actively participate in the GNU Radio community.

  3. 3. Curricular Activities • Design and implementation of a dual system consisting of a Voltage/Frequency converter and a Frequency/Voltage converter. • Design and implementation of a short-range, low-cost TX/RX Radio System operating in the RF spectrum. • Design of a Java-based client/server application involving a SQL database, threads and GUIs. The project consisted in a phonebook, with different blank spaces to fill in the main GUI(Name, address, phone number and so on), interfacing with a SQL database running on the server side. The client was able to recall data from the database and to delete stored data as well through SQL queries nested in the java code as simple strings. Being multi-threaded, the user was also able to launch different instances of the same application. The entire work was then reverseengineered and described in every single detail with an UML flow graph as required from my teacher. • Tweaking of the script, part of the Ubuntuzilla Project, to retrieve the latest versions(localized in different languages) of the Mozilla Foundation software(i.e. Firefox, Thunderbird and Seamonkey). After being downloaded, the binary files are packaged in the *.deb file format so that a debian-based Linux distribution user is able to install/uninstall the application in a very simple way. • Deploying open-source code on the Internet in my spare time.
