I'm an Electrical Engineering senior at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), in upstate New York, although I was born and raised in Spain.
I'm fluent in both, Spanish and English, and have command of French and Japanese as well as basic knowledge of Mandarin (Chinese). I have an endless list of interests although I'm extremely passionate about learning from different cultures, languages, traveling, the outdoors and developing biomedical instrumentation - particularly focused in BCI (Brain Computer Interfaces) and Vision Therapy applications.
As a college student I am constantly surrounded by the great thoughts of my friends and peers, which constantly motivates my mind to explore a myriad of different ideas. Hence, I am usually involved in several projects at a time but, for some strange reason, always manage to find time to spare.
So, if you think that my abilities could suit your needs, feel free to contact me! I'll be more than happy to help your business/idea succeed.
