My Tasks

In the MATE project I am responsible for the development of a surface skimmer and the system integration of all components and sensors into a data buoy. When creating skimmer prototypes, I am dealing 3D design, 3D printing and physical computing platforms, among others. In addition, I support the project coordinator in organizational tasks related to the project.
