Dorfell Leonardo Parra Prada, M.Sc.

I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering from the Universidad Industrial de Santander in 2012 and 2016 respectively. I've worked with partial reconfiguraion in FPGAs, along with RTOS in uBlaze based SoC. Besides, I have studied GPU architectures to estimate the execution time of FDTD algorithms. In the last few years, I worked in the Grupo de FĂ­sica Nuclear (GFNUN) studying machine learning algorithms and nuclear sources spectrum processing with Amptek DPPs.

Currently I'm working in my PhD at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. My thesis proposes ARM based SoC architectures capable of speeding up CNN for FER applications and training simple models in embedded systems running Pynq.

I like to face challenging topics and learn how things work. For instance, I'm really excited about understanding neural dynamics and its diseases. Moreover, I'll aim to improve the research environment by using my engineering skills.

Lastly, I love practicing the flute and hiking to discover new landscapes.
