Power electronics researcher and software developer
I did my Master's and PhD in power electronics after which I spent several years working for both big companies like ABB and GE as well as a number of start-ups. I specialized in the field of power converter control and smart grids and have published prolifically in high impact international journals and conferences besides also being the author of two books.
My expertise in electrical engineering and programming therefore resulted in me creating open source software for electrical engineers. I use open source software for teaching electrical engineering to students and practicing engineers with the typical theme of my courses being the application of programming to solve engineering problems.
