The class required J2ME/JSEE knowledge and the ability to support the class with Motorola smartphone development, plus all additional aid required to run the killer application competition sponsored by Motorola.
Teaching Assistant for Software Engineering, University of Florida (Fall2000)
Experience: The class was targeted to computer engineering seniors as a nintroduction to the software development cycle. Students carry-on a web-based project and deliver specific documents and specifications (architectural, design,UI), develop a prototype, schedule different tasks,and manage the project to be delivered on time. The TA assists technically and supervises their work, grades quizzes and exams\
Teaching Assistant for Introduction to CIS/Java, University of Florida (Summer 2000)
Experience:I taught an introductory lab session, graded quizzes, exams, and assignments. As an assistant I held different tutorial sessions on object oriented concepts and problem-solving skills.
Teaching Assistatn for C++,University of Florida(Spring2000)
Experience: Grading and preparing assignments for the class.
Instructor at the Central American Internetworking Conference,(9’1998)
Experience:During the conference, I taught a 3-day intensive hands-on class on network security. I covered topics from :network intrusion detection, privacy, and authentication mechanisms
Instructor, Central American Telecommunication Video conferencing (Summer 1996)
Experience:Teaching Linux(OperatingSystems), C++, and Networking seminars to engineers all over Central America (Remote teaching)
Centra American Telecommunication Commission, Engineer,Honduras,(8/1995 – 5/1997)
Experience: NetworkEngineer,Video conference systems (VTELandH.323), software development for telecommunications and traffic management
United Nations Development Program(UNDP), IT Consultant,Honduras,(11/1996 – 5/1997)
Experience:Network security and consultant for the United Nations program in Honduras. Software auditin gand network configuration
Research Assistant, University of Florida,Gainesville,FL(Jan ’00 – Aug’02)
Experience: I investigated the effects of handoff and network mobility at different vehicular speeds. I used Mobile network simulation and emulation were important tools to study Mobile-IP andLayer-2/3mobility protocols. I developed RAMON, Rapid Mobile Network Emulator, a device that emulates network layer mobility and programmatically replicates mobility conditions varying from signal strength, packet delay, BER, an dspeeds. RAMON uses real 802.11b AccessPoints, Omni-directional antennas, embedded computers(e.g. PC-104) and custom-build control circuitry. RAMON also used a.NET interface to automatically create network topologies to be emulated. In depth routing protocols explored ,IP tunnels, and low-level network device driver adjustments. I conducted extensive simulation work on ns-2
Research Assistant,UniversityofFlorida,Gainesville,FL (Sep’97 – Dec’99)
Experience: I joined the High-performance Computing and Simulation Research Lab. During my thesis work,I applied Fuzzy Logic in Network Management, focusing on how adaptive sampling could reduce captured statistics without losing important network behavior. Additionally,I researched ATM networks, SNMP(SimpleNetworkManagementProtocol), Virtual Interface Architecture(VIA) over Myrinet, CORBA,and High-performanceCluster Computing topics.
Program Manager Intern,MicrosoftCorporation, Redmond, WA (May– Sep’01)
Experience:As an intern, I investigated self-similarity and power management algorithms for WirelessNetworks. I modeled the method how service time per packet could be estimated and used for QoS in ad-hoc and infrastructure networks.
Network Engineer, Radiografica Costarricense, R&D, Costa Rica.(Jan- Jul’95)
Experience: I developed a microcontroller-based (x8051 and RUPI-51 micro-controllers) system to measure X.25 and PBX data traffic, Windows-based GUI, and X.25 frame captures
