Electrical longboards to embedded software engineer!!
Tell us a bit more about your background and how did you join EVORION?
I grew up in the region of Münsterland. I did my bachelor's degree in electrical engineering at the University of Applied Science Münster. Since I was a teenager, I always wanted to figure out how and why things work, and I have always loved building electric circuits and components from scratch. While looking for exciting projects, I got to know about EVORION trough my professor. The innovative technology of EVORION fascinated me a lot, so I first worked as a student assistant here and then I did my bachelor thesis on "Development of a Mask-aligner for manufacturing of Multilayer PDMS Microfluidic Chips", that we now use in the company. I had a great learning experience working on that project and I wanted to be the part of the team. So, now I enjoy being the embedded engineer here and perusing my master's degree as well.
What's the reason that excites and motivates you to come to EVORION every morning?
Certainly, I enjoy my 1st morning coffee at EVORION. Jokes apart, it is very inspiring to be a part of the progress and the development we are making at EVORION. I joined the company when it was about one year old, and it has been a great journey of ups and downs until now. The most importantly, the entire team here at EVORION is very talented, passionate and motivated towards the goal and that just makes a great working environment and feels home even at work.
Talking about your journey as an embedded system engineer, how was it?
I must say it was challenging in the initial development phase, however now we have optimized the process and it's a great feeling to finally have the first working prototypes. The most motivating and exciting part for me is to directly apply my knowledge of the electrical background and to work interdisciplinary together with life scientists during the project. I am also learning a lot about biology and mechanics at the same time.
What else do you like to do when you are not at work?
As mentioned before, I love to play around with all kinds of stuff, especially electronics. I have a 3D printer at home, and I design and develop parts with it for my hobbies. This helps me to troubleshoot and apply my knowledge in my daily work routine too. I have built electrical longboards that can reach a speed of over 40 km/h. It's a lot of fun to ride them. I also play volleyball and ride my motorcycle regularly.
