Gabriel Arrobo, Ph.D.

Dr. Gabriel Arrobo received his Engineering degree (CUM LAUDE) in Electronics and Telecommunications (5-year degree) from the Escuela Politecnica Nacional, in Quito, Ecuador in 2004 and the Engineering Diploma in Inter-networking (1-year graduate studies) from the Escuela Politecnica Nacional, in Quito, Ecuador in 2006. He received his Master of Business Administration, Concentration in strategy and enterprise policy from the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Toluca, Mexico in 2008. From May 2002 to December 2009, Gabriel was with the "Corporacion Nacional de Telecommunicaciones" (formerly ANDINATEL), a telecommunications service provider, where he held various jobs positions ranging from staff engineer to manager. In 2010, he received his Master of Sciences and, in 2012, he received his doctoral degree both in Electrical Engineering from the University of South Florida, in Tampa, Florida. His research interests include wireless systems, networking protocols and communciation algorithms.
