Title: Co-Founder, CEO
I am an Electronic and Telecommunications Engineer. I co-founded IEETECH, a social enterprise whose main product is Chipsafer, a platform that can track and early detect anomalies in cattle health remotely. In 2012 I was the winner of the International Telecommunications Union Young Innovators Competition and in 2013 I won the Best Young Inventor Award from the World Intellectual Property Organization. In terms of interests, my biggest passion has always been space. In 2009, I was awarded the IAF Youth Grant, which introduced me to Space Generation Advisory Council, a global non-governmetal organization in support of the United Nations Programme on Space Applications. I immediately became an active member and currently serve as co-Chair. In 2011 I attended International Space University and then served as the Space Studies Program 2012 Space Engineering Teaching Associate. I am currently managing editor of a book on small satellite programs that is part of the US Air Force Academy’s Space Technology Series. In 2013 I attended Singularity University and after I co-founded my second start-up, CloudStat, which uses UAVs for precision agriculture.
