Course Syllabi


IoT (Internet of Things), Embedded Design, Radio Astronomy
Ph.D., UCSD, 1995; Electrical Engineering (Applied Physics)
I've worked the gamut from embedded systems to HPC, Java to assembler, application engineer to blogger. At one time, I even did research in Radio Astronomy. I'm very proud that I started off as an electronic technician by obtaining an AA EET (Electronics Engineering Technology) degree from Los Angeles Harbor Community College. I currently work on the commercial side of IoT (Internet of Things) doing hardware, software, making and communicating. I blog on power management, IoT, computer architecture and some other things. And I lecture on Astronomy when I have the chance.
