    • The implementation of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) on FPGAs
    • The implementation of a wireless transceiver in C++
    • Firmware development for embedded systems in C/C++.

    During my PhD studies I worked as a lab demonstrator of the following modules:
    • Digital Design with VHDL
    • Linear Systems and Feedback Design in PSPICE
    • Second Year Audio and Media Engineering Experiments (various labs)
    • Digital Design in Cadence.
