Currently I'm enrolling in a PhD program about Robust-Video Coding based in Multiple Description Video Coding with applications in noisy wireless channels. I've been working in this matter for quite some years now.
For a hobby, I'm a official developer at Gentoo Linux where my role is currently package maintenance; however I did some work with the embedded team in the past.
I'm also one of the leads in the development of openchronos-ng, a opensource firmware for the ez430-chronos.
Other than computers I like to wander within Nature, including hiking, camping and skiing. I also enjoy traveling and meeting different cultures.
