    2006-2011 PhD Researcher, Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

    This project aimed to design a low-cost re-usable solution for inter-satellite link. The research work addressed the application of wireless terrestrial network standards to Distributed satellite systems in Low Earth Orbit.

    The achievements include:
    • The development and design of an FPGA-based System-on-Chip (SoC) for inter-satellite communications systems, utilising low power techniques for High-speed communication
    • 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.
