Objective

My next career step will involve managing technology and consulting projects. The areas that I am mostly interested in and have experience are software development and Computer Aided Engineering. My professional and scientific interests focus on stochastic simulation of engineering problems and quality improvement of processes.

Professional education

  • Green belt qualification (Motorola University)
  • UML and design patterns (Zuhlke GmbH)

Summary

What I enjoy the most is solving problems. I like analyzing them, finding their root causes and coming up with ideas to solve them. I like translating customer requirements to software solutions and putting together software tools to do the job. These are some principles I always rely on:

  • There is nothing that cannot be done.
  • I don't like sentences that start with "The problem is..."'.
  • I am diplomatic and fair
  • I like square understanding

Skills

Skills

Finite Element Simulation

Finite element simulation expert in the field of metallic structures. Material modelling and behaviour. Research and professional experience. Currently working in the field of stochastic simulations of automotive parts manufacturing. I am involved in the development of software tools used for process robustness, design capability calculations and extending such techniques to new areas and applications. I also work towards a six sigma certification.    

C++ software engineer

Professional software developer with strong background in object oriented programming, C/C++, software design and architecture. Simulation Data Management and algorithms among my stronger points. Software design and architecture, having participated in all phases of the development process.
