Timeline of my Experience

September 2018 - Present

ETH Zurich

MSc in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

After graduating from FHNW I started the Master of Science study to deepen my knowledge in electronics and math.

November 2019 - July 2020

Mettler Toledo

Part Time Electrical Engineer

Design of analog circuits and prototyping of high speed data acquisition using FPGA

August 2015 - August 2018

FHNW Brugg-Windisch

BSc in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

During my full time studies at FHNW, I acquired the fundamental knowledge in electronics and could apply the learned in semester projects. Highlights during this time were the grade 6.0 for the Bachelor’s Thesis and an average mark of 5.5 over the whole studies.

July 2015 - July 2017

Mettler Toledo

Seasonal Job

Assignment included hardware prototyping and testing as well as writing extensive measurement protocols to verify a products market suitability.

July 2011 - August 2015

Müller Martini Zofingen

Apprenticeship Electronics Technician

After the compulsory school I started my apprenticeship in electronics with simultaneous professional matura. A highlight was the participation at SwissSkills championships where I scored third place


Selected projects

FPGA for Enhanced Image Processing

Bachelor's Thesis

Together with a fellow student we implemented an image processing algorithm on multiple FPGAs to accelerate image processing. Thanks to my implementaton of a full Ethernet stack, the solution is scalable on a network.
