Xavier Merino

Xavier Merino is an undergraduate student at Florida Institute of Technology. He is currently pursuing his BS in Computer Engineering. He discovered his passion for technology early on while destroying his parents’ computers to see what was going on inside. Since then, that curiosity has led him to learn how to code, use design tools, and manage databases. Xavier is a strong advocate of sound UI/UX principles and as such has become well versed in design tools such as Sketch, Omnigraffle, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and Fireworks. When it comes to development, Xavier prefers coding for iOS in Swift but he also has experience working with .NET languages (mainly VB.NET and C#), Java, C/C++, Python, JavaScript, and Adobe’s ActionScript.

Xavier works at WiCE as a research assistant. He has worked with embedded systems, proprietary Bluetooth devices, GPS, and GSM/GPRS solutions. He is interested in Big Data, machine learning, and wireless communications. On a daily basis he develops iOS applications. When out of the lab, he can be found hitting the weights or reading a book.

Timothy von Friesen is an undergraduate student in the Computer Engineering department, pursuing a BS in Computer Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology. He began programming in C/C++ during his teenage years until he chose to join the United States Navy. While in the Navy he became a certified electrician and operator of Nuclear Reactors onboard Navy ships. After serving for 6 years he began his studies in Electrical Engineering at FIT, it wasn’t until the end of his sophomore year that he realized his true passion was in software (embedded) systems. He quickly shifted his studies toward computer engineering and has been programming embedded systems ever since. He is profficient in a wide range of programming languages from basic assembly language to the higher level C++ and others.  Tim is currently desinging an object-oriented framework for interfacing low-power transceivers in wireless sensor networks.
