I am an electronic technician with more than 10 years of experience in the field of scientific instrumentation dedicated to radio astronomy, and appointed as Head of the Observatory Department of the Argentine Institute of Radio astronomy. Among my fields of knowledge are the development of electronic instruments, development of radio frequency systems (Front-Ends), development of digital systems (Back-Ends), as well the integration of systems and their functional verification. I have also experience working at international collaboration projects that have led me to work and be trained in institutions such as NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, USA, and the Netherlands Research School for Astronomy, where I received training in submillimeter receivers use and development as well in the use of digital spectrometers and frequency down converter modules.
My current project involves the design and integration of a digital back-end for pulsar timing as a collaboration with the NanoGrav project and the Rochester Institute of Technology, EEUU.
