Industrial University of Santander. Bucaramanga, Colombia
Thesis: Design of a 3.3V LDO regulator in AMS 0.35 µm. (Grade 5/5.)
• Scholarship from the Colciencias young researchers program, Colombia 2008.


Delft University of Technology (February – May 2013)
Teacher Assistant Digital Circuit Design

In this work I configured the Cadence design flow tools required for the practical part of the course,
providing both technical and theoretical support for the development of the course projects. Thanks to this, students were able to design circuits of different complexities, from custom logic cells to high performance time-to-digital converters. Moreover, I was in charge of the assignment’s grading and verification of the final projects.

Mons University, Belgium (April 2011 – June 2011)
Visiting Engineer, SEMI department

I developed the floorplan of a high efficiency 4-output SIMO DC/DC converter, designed in LFoundry
0.15 µm technology. For the first time within the SEMI department group, thermal dissipation, EMI and IR drop were addressed using the Cadence simulation environment.

SiliconReef, Brazil October (2009 – March 2011)
Analog-Mixed Signal Designer

In this job I had diverse responsibilities, from the modeling of circuits in Verilog-A/MS and MATLAB to the design of power management and high precision analog circuits. I introduced the top-down design approach in the company, based on the Cadence hierarchy editor. In addition, I enhanced the circuit verification methodology creating custom testbenches. Particularly, I worked on several interesting projects such as:

• Verilog-A/MS model of an energy harvesting system using PV modules and SMPS for USB ports.
• Modeling of a Zigbee transceiver for topology selection and specification extraction using MATLAB.
• Design and verification of a 1.8 V LDO in LFoundry 0.15 µm technology.
• Design of a CC-CV Li-Ion battery charging system including trickle charge control and timer.


• March/13. “Computer Modeling for Electromagnetics: Visibility of the Invisible”. “ATHENS”
academic exchange program. Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. 36 hours.
• March/10. “Power Management: Theory and Applications”. MEAD education - Jack Baskin Engi-
neering School. University of California at Santa Cruz, U.S.A. 40 hours.
• April/09. “FPGA Fundamentals: Project Flow”. Xilinx. Porto Alegre, Brasil. 8 hours.
• December/05. PC assembly and maintenance. System Plus. Bucaramanga. 90 hours.
