I Received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Communications Systems from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2009. My last year of Bachelor studies was spent as an exchange student at the Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm.
My Master studies were interrupted for a year in 2007 to do an internship at the System IP core laboratory of NEC Corporation, Kawasaki, Japan. There, I investigated adaptive channel equalization algorithms for WCDMA on a massively parallel architecture.
My Master thesis was written while at IBM Research, Zürich, where I stayed for another year after graduating. There I developed new algorithms for the fast computation of continuous Fourier series of polygons, applied to mask layouts of integrated circuits in the optical lithography process.
Following this, I returned for almost two year to NEC laboratories, this time in the Media Information Processing group to work on single-mic speech denoising algorithms. After the tsunami and earthquake of March 11 2011, I became involved with Safecast where I designed and built devices to take car-borne geo-located measurements of radioactive contamination.
In the spirit of reproducible research, I try to maintain clean code repositories for my projects.
