    Motivation,  Interests


    “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

    -Theodore Roosevelt-

    Ever since my childhood I have been highly dedicated to become a scientist/research engineer working on cutting-edge research projects. I have been impressed by the space programs of the 60’s and the tremendous accomplishments of engineers back then. As a child I became determined to become one of those men one day. This inspiration made me do my best throughout my studies and I have never stopped 'daring mighty things'. I would like to contribute to the exploration of space and my dream is to stand one day near a launch pad watching some equipment, in the development of which I have taken part, lifting off. I am ever curious and interested in almost anything ranging from politics and history to neuroscience and artificial intelligence, but my passion has always been space exploration and physics.

    Professional Profile


    ·         Strong skills in mathematics and physics based on my high school education having been focused on these subjects (I won numerous awards in national competitions) and the MSc degree in physics which pairs up with good analytical skills and a natural sense of problem solving.

    ·         Besides the theoretical knowledge recognized by former advisors as a thorough experimenter.

    ·         In-depth knowledge of fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and combustion.

    ·         Good and effective communication skills chiseled while having edited the former website of an amateur sports federation and writing numerous posts for an increasingly popular science blog.

    ·         Especially fond of learning and understanding new concepts and working with pen and paper.

    ·         Work well with others but also capable of working individually. Due to the considerable amount of time spent abroad have no problems with adapting to different cultures and an international group.
