My passion in the systems engineering

It is all about how to meet the challenge of engineering a system of unprecedented complexity.

Although my practical experience mainly lays in designing of building structures, planning and managing execution of construction projects, I also have an interest in many other types of systems such as economic and sociocultural systems, systems in cognitive science and organizational theory as well as natural systems.
