Experience

Currently employed as a data scientist at DigitalGlobe, Longmont, Colorado, working on the design and implementation of
geospatial data mining algorithms --- check out our crowdsourcing platform at www.tomnod.com.
From September 2012 till May 2014, I was a researcher at the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC),
in Barcelona, Spain, with broad research interests in the area of wireless communication systems. 

From November 2010 to September 2012, I was a research collaborator at the SIGNET group of the Department of
Information Engineering,
University of Padova, Italy, and, in 2010, I was a post-doctoral research scholar at the Electrical Engineering
Department, University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
I did my PhD in Communication Theory and Systems at the University of California
San Diego. 

From 2009 to 2011, I was also part of the Valley of the Khans Project, which was funded by National
Geographic. The goal of the project was to combine historical and archaeological research, with cutting edge remote
sensing techniques, for the purpose of detecting and identifying archaeological sites in Mongolia.
