I have worked for several years in academia and industry in different corners around the world. During academic research, my focus was mainly on structural dynamics and vibration analysis. Later, in industry, I worked on different cross-functional areas including analysis and design of structures, finite element analysis, signal processing, vibration analysis (structure, soil, mechanical, machine foundation, heavy industry, seismic, fluid dynamics), constitutive modeling, stress analysis and numerical modeling. I have used wavelets in different application areas during academic research and industrial activities as well. Moreover, I have vast experience in multiple project management, product management and people management areas. Currently, I am managing a group of 16 people in the areas of plasticity, damage and fracture and tribology (in Tata Steel Europe located at Ijmuiden, Netherlands) covering mostly industrial research and development activities.
