I am a PhD student in the Sustainable Energy Research Group in the University of Southampton, working with Professor AbuBakr S. Bahaj and nquiringminds. the University of Southampton. My current topic is on using Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision on Renewable Energy production from Photovoltaic Solar Panels.
I’m mostly interested in programming, especially in anything related to Artificial Intelligence, such as Machine Learning or Computer Vision.
Jun 2018 - Current
Some of my responsibilities included:
- Using deep-learning for the classification of signals using a software-defined radio.
- Creating a front-end data visualization responsible web-application using React.
- Creating Bash install scripts.
- Designing and building servers and RESTful APIs using OpenAPI/Swagger.
Embedded Engineering Intern
Jun 2017 - Sep 2017
I was working on experimenting with high-speed data processing and storage at nquiringminds.
My work consisted of benchmarking and testing different processing solutions.
- Compiling and optimizing TensorFlow on ARM processors
- Designing and benchmarking fast and space-efficient binary-data storage
- Testing and benchmarking fast signal-processing algorithms
This involved writing code in Python, C++, and SQLite, along with testing SIMD vectorized instructions, compiler optimizations, compression algorithms, and file systems (ie F2FS vs ext4).
Mar 2018 - Apr 2018
I was doing sysadmin with Linux, writing Bash scripts and Systemd services for automatically creating networks and accesspoints over WiFi, Ethernet, 3G, and SMS.
Airbus Defence & Space Friedrichshafen
Jun 2016 - Sep 2016
I was working on the on-board software for the “FLP Testbench” project: a testbench for a small, affordable, customizable, and state-of-the-art satellite platform. My work mainly consisted of porting the on-board software to run on a newer dual-core computer by adapting the code to use asymmetric multiprocessing. I also upgraded and tested the code with the in-development version of RTEMS 4.11, and tested symmetric multiprocessing.
The software was written in C++11 with an object-oriented design. To increase code reusability, the code was heavily encapsulated and filled with abstract interfaces and generic templates. Doxygen was used to make documentation.

First Class Honors
The University of Southampton’s MEng Electronic Engineering with Artificial Intelligence gave me an overview of the entire field of Electronics with a focus on Artificial Intelligence.
For my third-year project, I worked on evaluating and assessing Iterative-Learning-Control algorithms with Professor Eric Rogers.
For my fourth-year project, I was the project leader for simulating a robotic arm, with my focus on using Convolutional Neural Networks for Computer Vision with Dr. Klaus-Peter Zauner.

PID Controlled Voltage Boost Converter
I created a boost converter controlled by an ATmega644P. It was programmed in C and used a PID controller. In addition, the embedded device communicated to a PC via UART, where a GUI (also programmed in C) showed statistics and allowed changing parameters.
I built a password manager in Java. It had a cryptographically secure random password generator, and saved the passwords in an encrypted format. The GUI was made using Swing.
