What does your day typically consist of?
A typical day consists of a lot of coffee, but also a lot of data, statistics, software and a bit of math.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy figuring things out, and my role allows me to do a lot of this.
How did you get into the role in the first place?
I got into wind power by chance, I was looking for a change and I got a call from an acquaintance asking if I would be interested in working within wind power. It’s a bit ironic that I ended up where I did, as I had always seen wind power as a bit of a hippie thing.
What is your degree and / or professional qualification?
M.Sc. Electrical Engineering.
What is the most interesting type of work you have done and why?
It’s almost impossible to pick just one thing, but a recent thing that I found very interesting was to derive a continuous multi-dimensional power curve, re-project the empirical data onto the power curve, and then fit an N-dimensional tube around it in order to easier detect future power performance issues.
What is your biggest achievement at work?
My biggest achievement is still to come. Anything else would be to move backwards.
Any hidden talents?
They would be hidden for a reason, wouldn’t they?
What is your favourite hobby?
I like building things.back to day in the life
