Short Bio:

I have amassed over 9 years of progressive experience in telecommunications and information systems definition, design and test. My first professional experience took place at Protos Comunicaciones, a small company focused on the development of fleet management systems. I was attached to the R&D department with responsibility for design and system development. After that, I joined GMV Aerospace and Defence as software developer and tester. I was attached to the Security department with responsibilities for development and verification and validation of command and control systems. Almost three years later, I began to work at Xacom Comunicaciones as Presales Engineer. My main role consisted on providing support to the sales team and preparing prototypes according to my customers’ requirements. In 2008 I joined Amper Programas as technical manager with responsibilities for telecommunications systems specification, design and project management. It allowed me to gain experience with a wide range of technologies (system virtualization, networking, mobile networks VHF, HF networks, WiMAX, etc.).
I am currently IV&V Manager at Amper Programas Abu Dhabi in charge of system integration and validation of telecommunication and information systems (test planning and conduction, system integration strategy, preparation of procedures for deployment and maintenance, and diagnose of malfunctioning). A key point of my role is to match team members to the assigned task to assure that we achieve the best possible outcome for the tasks in hand. I am responsible for checking the quality, progress and outcome of the activities and reporting back to the departmental head.
