Technological designer with specialization in machine tribology. Interested in modeling and simulation of mechanisms and tribological contacts, and strongly attracted to tribological testing, tribometers, and hands-on work in general. Experienced in designing and developing tailored testing methods and friction measurement instruments, particularly for rolling-sliding interfaces. Skilled in prototype development, testing, and failure diagnosis of electromechanical systems.
At present, I am a researcher at TU Delft scaling down and developing novel tribological testing procedures to optimize the performance of heavily loaded contacts in the wind energy sector.
