I would like to raise the international living and education standards through the deployment of telecommunications and low cost technologies in developing regions.
Currently I am an MBA Student at the Sloan School of Management of the Massachussets Institute of Technology.
I work with the E-Development Group at MIT's Media Laboratory, helping to deploy wireless networks in developing countries.
In the past, I was the Program Manager within Lucent Technologies's Wireless Internet Access Unit.
I was responsible for deploying wireless networks in Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico and China.
Prior to the Wireless Internet Access Unit, I was the Program Manager for the deployment of SAP systems in Europe to be used by Lucent's sales teams and factories.
