As an enthusiastic engineer I have tested and applied my problem solving skills throughout my experience of working in both an academia and industry-like research companies. I am a quick learner with can-do attitude who is able to maintain the tasks under the pressure and keep organized work flow in a busy environment.

I believe in a delivery-focused approach together with hard work alongside a solid team of professionals - this is what provides success in a field of innovative engineering and leads to client loyalty. My multicultural experience enables me to carry out my duties in any work environment together with people with different background and mindset. I am seeking a position to apply my skills and abilities in the engineering industry that provide job prospects to an energetic and inventive professional.
