Juan Pablo Caram received both his B.S. degree in electrical engineering and the professional Electrical Engineer degree, with Maximum Honors, from Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in 2006 and 2008 respectively. He is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in the same field at the Georgia Institute of Technology, with focus on RF circuits and systems, and holds a cumulative GPA of 3.88.
His work experience consists of 5 years with the ALMA Observatory (through the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, NRAO), currently the largest astronomical observatory in the world, at which he participated in prototype systems testing and integration, and later, he held the position of Electronics Branch Lead for production systems integration. Technologies involved were terahertz cryogenic receivers, mm-wave local oscillator synchronization across several kilometer baselines, terabit/second optical links and microwave systems, among others. In addition, he has worked as an independent consultant, developing industrial automation and measurement systems from specification to implementation.
Mr. Caram has broad experience in electronic systems and circuit design and development, including analog and RF electronics, power electronics, control systems, test equipment, mechatronics, FPGA and VHDL-based digital systems, and frequency synthesis. He has published some of his work through EDN magazine.
