SENIOR RF SYSTEMS ENGINEER
I am a senior electronics engineer focusing on RF systems, microwave, wireless and analog circuits design and optimization which allow engineering and management teams to achieve program and corporate objectives. My field of experience is diverse: fluent in analog/digital signal processing and communication systems theory; familiar with mix-signal/RF IC design; adept at gathering and translating complex wireless systems requirements into viable solutions; experienced in electronic system bringing up, testing and debugging. I have worked with large firms as well as with fabless design centers. My strengths include innovative design solutions, expertise in RF systems and abilities at collaborating across departments to complete projects to specification on time and within budget.
