About

Graduated in 2010. Since then, focused on the certification and testing of HVAC units. This incorporated various standards: UL, CSA, ISO, EN etc... allowing me to understand the safety requirements in various products and the legal framework of different regulatory bodies.
Further explored my mechanical engineering career in industrial machine design, thus implementing my knowledge and skills in practice.
I apply a hands-on approach to product design, from the implementation of product design cycles to on-field testing and investigation.
