Research CV

On this page you can find an overview of the research work I’ve done during my career. Rather than providing a full summary of all projects, it highlights the research fields in which I’ve been active. More details about some of these projects can be found in my publication overview. Other research projects were done for customers and cannot be disclosed due to confidentiality.

Overall I’ve been involved in many different research projects and had hands-on experience with theoretical and experimental techniques in modelling, simulation, design, clean room fabrication (chip- and wafer-level), layout work, programming, test setup building and physical, optical and electrical characterisation.
