Luís Duarte is a college student who is working towards becoming a PhD Electrical Engineer. Currently student of Doctoral Program in the University of Aveiro with the “VLC heterogeneous networks for future wireless systems” theme. He wishes to continue his work of his master thesis which was a Data Link Layer for a Visible Light Communication broadcast system and improve it to manage multiple wireless technologies, as well as, bidirectional functionality.

He has technical experience in digital signal processing in reconfigurable devices (FPGA) for Visible Light Communication systems. He has experience in radio front-ends configurability and integration in FPGA and is currently a grant researcher of Instituto de Telecomunicações. Luís has experience in HDL design, Xilinx System Generator and HLS in FPGA (C/C++).

He is currently working in Instituto de Telecomunicações of Leiria in the Antennas and Propagation group, as well as, an invited lecturer in Instituto Politécnico de Leiria.
