Short Bio

Hey! I’m a PhD Student at IMDEA Networks. I work on IoT, Spectrum Sensing, Software Defined Radio and Localization. Previously I worked on robotics, specifically on lightweight autonomous vehicles.

I will soon finish my PhD (fingers crossed), so my life will shake up a bit in the coming months.
