My Resume

  • Work Experience

  • UAV Software Developer

    IMTech - 2019 - Current

    ● Conducted research and development on various flight controller boards including Skynode, PixHawk, PixRacer, SPRacingH7, MatekH7Slim, CUAV Nora, and Kakute F7.

    ● Worked extensively on multiple layers of PX4, encompassing drivers, modules, library, and NuttX RTOS, in both C and C++ languages for different microcontrollers.

    ● Recognized as a maintainer in the PX4 Autopilot flight controller community

    ● Engaged with flight control algorithms

    ● Integrated and enhanced drivers for various sensors including airspeed sensors, IMU, magnetometers, barometers, and GPS modules.

    ● Contributed to improvements in actuator control by replacing PWM with digital data (DShot)

    ● Ported PX4 Autopilot to a flash-restricted STM32H750 board by executing a portion of the code directly from external FLASH and running time-critical code from RAM.

    ● Implemented communication between PX4 and uAvioniX ADS-B Transceiver for traffic control via MavLink.

    ● Created various types of tests, including black-box tests, stress tests, unit tests, and integration tests.

    ● Utilized Gazebo in Software-in-the-Loop (SITL) for the development of navigation algorithms.

    ● Worked with Simulation In Hardware (SIH) to simulate flight on real hardware.

    ● Significant experience collaborating with multicultural teams, both remotely and onsite, fostering effective communication, adaptability, and successful project outcomes

    ● Active FPV drone pilot, I continually engage in flying drones, honing my piloting skills and gaining practical insights that complement my technical expertise

  • Embedded Software Developer
