    Industrial Engineer specialized in Electronics and Automatics* from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, with one-year Erasmus at Politecnico di Milano. During that exchange period I worked on FPGA-based acceleration of software applications with Xilinx Zynq-7000 devices, in the NECST Lab of the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering. I am currently widening my technical and language competencies on a self-learning basis, and engaged in an active job search, looking forward to getting involved in international working experiences. *(degree equivalent to Bachelor + Master of Engineering, accredited by ABET: www.abet.org)
