volunteer profile

Simone Ferlin
W. Europe Standard Time

I'm interested in questions surrounding networked systems, Internet, communication security, transport protocols and congestion control, network measurements and data analysis. I have worked in these areas for the past six years, and I would like to apply these skills building systems to solve real social problems with technology - being these monitoring and conservation or empowerment. In my spare time I am engaged in ways to integrate communication technology into biodiversity monitoring and conservation, using satellite imagery, GPS tagging, coverage maps and bio-tracking. To work with all these things, I am mostly using Python, C (system's programming), network stack development, different API's for frontend as well as backend development and diverse communication technology equipment, e.g., cellular, satellite, etc.
