    Additional information

     I have a natural ability to learn quickly and an advanced understanding of RF Electronics, antennas and digital signal processing (DSP).

    While working in NASA I gained deep knowledge of ground stations operations due to the fact that I worked with engineers from NASA´s Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex and JPL.

     I´m very eager to show my skills and learn in a challenging environment.

     I was interviewed about Ground Stations and Deep Space Telecommunications in The Spanish National Television.
