exploring the simulation


I recently finished my Master's degree in Robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, EPFL. It gave me a solid foundational knowledge of both the hardware side of a project (Electrical, Mechanical and Material engineering) and also the Software development side (my minor was in Data Science).
Now, I work as a freelance hardware prototyping consultant. Turning ideas into reality is my biggest pleasure. My lab is growing rapidly and I can create prototypes in-house with a very short turnaround.
I also document my personal projects on YouTube. Most of the time those projects aim to sensitize the viewer to a problem (for example sustainability or e-waste). Sometimes I also create things just because I enjoy the challenge.
For fun, I like to explore new countries and I don't hesitate to pack my backpack for a quick adventure when I have the opportunity to do so. The mountains are nearby, so I love a good hike.
