    Mother tongue


    Other language(s)

    English, Dutch, French (basic), Chinese (beginner)


    (*) Common European Framework of Reference (CEF) level



    Social skills and competences

    I have a good team spirit and also sound individual working skills, which I gained in the course of my studies, during my internship/traineeship at ESTEC and my current position at Huisman. I am able to discuss technical as well as social topics in an adequate manner. I defend my own opinions, but I am also open to logical persuasions. I commun­icate well with my supervisors and interact effortlessly with other engineers, co-workers and customers. I show a very courteous, respectful and polite behavior to people. Due to my experience coaching and supervising children in Judo I learned a lot of patience.



    Organisational skills and competences

    In the course of my current work, previous work at ESTEC and during my studies, I have had to organize work group meetings, coordinate the availability of the participants and manage my individual assignments and complete them in due time. I try to motivate the exchange of knowledge within a team, discuss questions with customers and colleagues openly, and attach importance to punctuality and thoroughness.



    Technical skills and competences

    Due to my research activities at Huisman, I extended my mechanical, hydraulic and optical analytical as well as practical abilities. Before, I gained broad knowledge of aerospace engineering in matters of e.g. airplane performance and aerodynamics. More importantly, I obtained in-depth knowledge of space engineering in matters of e.g. systems engineering, astrodynamics, space mission geometry & planning, and space debris. I have a good understanding of technical problems and the urge to understand measurement techniques. I have a strong inclination to extend my present knowledge and a good ability to adapt to new tasks and work out solutions efficiently. I performed and enjoyed numerous simulation tasks (mainly with MATLAB and Java). I also have strong tendencies towards hardware related duties, which I could enjoy during several laboratory exercises manipulating and measuring material properties or building electrical circuits. I am skillful with my hands and was able to completely refurbish my own house – and it is still standing.



    Computer skills and competences


    I have a good knowledge of the following software packages:

    ESA’s FOCUS-1 (Fast Orbital Computation Utility Software)

    Microsoft Office suite


    I have a basic knowledge of

    C++ & Java

    Lotus Notes

    STA & STK


    I am very comfortable with Windows and UNIX systems. I have some experience with a Sun Solaris system.



    Personal interests

    Judo, tennis, volleyball, badminton, travelling, snorkeling, movies
