In Previous Life

  • One of the main architects of a multi-radar air traffic control system. Still in operation and used by many organizations/countries. [2000-2001]
  • Designed a low cost PCR and electrophoresis machine. Still in use by some labs in the country. [1999-2001]
  • Designed a sonar signal processing system. Did not go beyond simulation phase. [2002]
  • Designed and successfully simulated a face recognition solution for a possible toy application. Was probably a few years ahead of its time and never made it to the market. [1997-1998]
