A curious engineer

About Me

I enjoy tackling engineering and business challenges. I believe in privacy and ownership of personal data. I believe in sharing and building our collective body of knowledge.

I am an engineer with a strong academic background, experienced in delivering projects in challenging environments with diverse teams. I enjoy studying the iron triangle between cost, schedule and quality, where quality includes safety, sustainability and social value.
