Biography

I graduated with honours as a Mechanical Engineer in 2013 at the Hague University in Delft, the Netherlands, and started my career in the oil and gas industry as a Piping Designer/Engineer.

I have worked for over three years on projects for companies such as Shell, Chevron, Jacobs Engineering, Damen Shiprepair and Petroleum Devolpment Oman for the design of oil refineries and FPSO's (Floating Production Storage and Offloading).

In September 2018 I started my PhD at Data61 in a joint collaboration with the Science and Engineering Faculty of Queensland University of Technology on a smart city project about sensing systems, air quality in buildings, compliance and usage of machine learning techniques for localisation of gas sources.
