My name is Germán H. Flores and I am currently a Computer Engineering graduate student at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I received my bachelor's degree at
California State University, Sacramento in Computer Engineering. I have always had an interest in computers, electronics and anything electronic that I could
disassemble and play with. Throughout my school career and hands-on work experience, I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in the areas of software
and hardware. I have merged my knowledge and passion for the field to design and implement algorithms as well as design and build devices to innovate the current medical
technology and help humankind. If I am not in the lab or in the library, I am probably doing some activity I enjoy doing such as: cooking, playing tennis or basketball, hiking,
bike riding, backpaking, or reading.
