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