Work experience

I joined Sirris shortly after graduating university and never left. Recently, my work has focused on integrated sensors and other machine data, and what they can teach us about the outcome of machining processes. I like starting up research projects and applications at SMEs and large companies, and I’m always on the lookout for innovative European companies to collaborate with.

Fun fact

I’m a big sports fan (both actively and passively) and a father of 2 small children. In my remaining free time, you’ll probably find me in the kitchen.
