Bachelor of Science, Computer Engineering June, 2018 Las Positas College

Transfer Electrical Engineering and Computer Science June, 2016 SKILLS:

Programming Languages: C/C++, Assembly (MIPS), Python, Verilog, Unity (Graphics & C#). Software: Linux, Qt, DOS, EAGLE (PCB Design), VMware, Virtual Box, and PSoC Creator. Foreign Languages: Arabic (Native).

Experience with Chips: Arduino, ESP8266, Altera Maxâ 10 FPGA, Intel 8051 (ADC & DAC), Onion's Omega2 (Linux Server), and Sensors such as MPU-9250, PNI’s M&M and ADXL345. EXPERIENCE:

Firmware Engineer Intern, TacSense Inc. - Woodland, CA June 2017 - October 2017

• Programed the Intel 8051 (MCS-51) in C, GUI by Qt, and Dobot Magician’s control logic.

• Built circuits to receive, amplify, filter, and process signals coming from a capacitive sensor.

• Communicated with different MEMS chips using I2C and SPI protocols.

• Wrote firmware and software to process their data to be used in applications such as AirMouse and a 3D game.

Tutor, Las Positas College - Livermore, CA January 2014 - May 2016

• Taught essential concepts to students in one-on-one and group sessions.

• Subjects include Mathematics, Calculus based Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science. PROJECTS:

Plant Mega-Photography (Senior Design Project) January 2018 - Present

• Collaborated with other students to build the whole product including a BLE App.

• Wrote firmware to monitor a plant’s health using multiple sensors including an IR Camera. Sound Wave Signal Transmission December 2017 - Present

• Recording sound from a microphone through an ADC and transmitting the recorded data obtained by DSP from one transceiver to another.

• Received signal, from a R2R 8-bit DAC to a headset, would play the same sound recorded. Home Weather Station January 2017

• Constructed a small circuit with a temperature and humidity sensor, and a WiFi chip that reads the data and broadcasts it over the network using HTML page.

• Temperature is also broadcasted by an RF transceiver to an Arduino board.

• Built a circuit with Arduino board to display received temperature on a 7-Segment LED display that is controlled by an 8-bit shift register chip. Intrusion Detection Security Device December 2016 - January 2017

• Built a system that senses thermal motion through an PIR-sensor that sends an SMS to a phone through the internet, all through a micro-controller with a WiFi chip.

• Programmed the Micro-controller in Lua.
