“The best part of my job is the people I work with. I continue to learn from my colleagues in systems and software, and all the other great experts in our group. Our division develops the electrical systems for the airplane – work that’s as exciting as it is challenging. It creates a healthy tension between the business reason for a project and “we want this to do cool, great things.” I have to be the one to say, “OK, now show me the reason and why it makes sense commercially” – and that’s something I really enjoy doing.”

“I’ve worked on many inspiring projects at UTAS. One that I’m particularly proud of is the infrared drying technique for paint I developed. Leading the project in its entirety, I was able to collaborate with experts as I drove the technology forward. Once complete, my shop was able to reduce the required floor space by half, and lower energy consumption by a factor of five. Today, a third infrared oven has been built to support the Airbus A350 Value Stream at Toulouse, and a fourth one is in construction at Hamburg.”
