My tertiary education was completed in Europe, and I also undertook further specialised training during my professional career.

Formal Education

Sciences, IT, Project Management, Six Sigma

Originally graduated in Physics, I had numerous training in computing during my career as IT developer, business analyst and project manager. During the past few years, I have also been trained and I graduated as Engineer in production management, process improvement area.

I am also trained as a Six Sigma Black Belt (DMAIC methodology, statistical tools, Process Mapping, Process Capability, MSA, ANOVA, FMEA, DOE, Control Plan, etc.).

I always put value on further education or personal training in the aim to broaden my scope of knowledge, compare methods, keep up with the latest technology and find global solutions.
