Skills and Expertises

Telecommunication engineering

I have spent a large amount of time on telecommunication engineering and have 3 journal papers in this field. I am totaly familiar with information theory, coding, modulation schemes, transceiver structures, antenna, electromagnetics, ... .

LTE/LTE-A technology

I have very deep insight about 4G technology as I worked 2 years in university to implement whole physical layer of the LTE and LTE-A in C++. and After graduation I pursued my research on LTE in Huawei and then Nokia as LTE network optimizer engineer and it helped me acheive a very broad and deep knowledge in the field of LTE radio access network and protocol stack.

C++ programming

I spent last 4 years on C++ programming and obtained solid background in object oriented programming and multi-threaded programming. I have experience of using gnuradio/C++ for implementation software defined radio. For example I have  written 8000 lines of C++ code to implement LTE eNodeB on USRP ( as my Master's degree thesis and also I wrote 4000 lines of C++ code for implementing a fast frequency hopping spread spectrum modem on USRP.
