With a strong High-Performance Computing (HPC) background, he has gained hands-on experience processing large-scale data from radar and other sensors. He has honed his skills in hardware-software co-design, align-ing complex algorithms with specific systems and architectures to enhance throughput, and specializing in crafting tailored solutions for resource-constrained systems. His understanding of server processing underscores my competence in designing and developing comprehensive systems to meet specific challenges and requirements.
