Below are few examples where you could gain tangible benefits from my experience - Matlab development of all kind, e.g., algorithms, GUIs, full applications - Data conversion and processing from one or multiple sources - Implementing algorithms based on scientific publications - Converting algorithms from another language to C++,C#,Java, Python or Matlab - Data analysis and visualization - Requirement analysis & management, e.g., reading texts and extracting measurable requirements from them with traceability to the source - Measure requirements quality by classifying them, e.g, is there an acceptance criteria, is this a system or user requirement, does the requirement have multiple requirements in it. - Creating and writing acceptance testing procedures with traceability to the project requirements I can work on both Windows and Linux platforms. Looking forward to working with you! Kari References: - LinkedIn: - GitHub: - Some older material in Google code
