About Nikki Cooper
I aspire to be an engineer. Both of my parents are engineers, as were both of their parents as well as their parents parents. I wish to continue with this tradition. Right now, I am learning as much as I can as there is so much to learn! Combined with all of my other interests and school activities, there are simply not enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. In terms of computers, I use Linux (Funtoo Linux to be exact) exclusively as I have been using it all my life. My dad is a ham radio operator and he taught me how to send and receive CW when I was real young. I'm not quite as fast as my dad but I can hold up on my own at 30 wpm. Maybe one of these days I might get an amateur radio license, but right now there is simply not enough hours in the day to work that in. However, I am fascinated by RF electronics and radio theory.

At the moment I am studying FPGA's as well as Verilog and VHDL. Much is over my level of education, but none-the-less I've been fairly successful with a few simple FPGA implementations here and there. It all sounds super impressive, but trust me, the learning curve is steep. Also doing projects that need microcontrollers is lots of fun and I can navigate in C fairly well and a little bit of C++ out of necessity. Arduino of course and more recently Teensy.

I am more interested in the math involved when designing circuits, I firmly believe that if I don't understand the math behind the electronics theory, then I couldn't possibly have a good understanding of it at all. I guess that is the engineering blood in me. It's not easy but the more I study, the easier it becomes. Just takes a huge amount of time and effort as does most worthwhile things. Much of the time the math will climb steeply over my head very quickly which leaves me frustrated.
