Technology Entrepreneurship Startup Boards Engineering Design Product Development Robust Design

My main areas of interest are in Startup Boards, Start-up Governance and Technology Entrepreneurship. I have a background in Mechanical, Hard-Tech and Sustainability based start-ups/spin-outs, running DTU's flagship course/incubator DTU X-Tech and currently have the role as Head of Ent. Practice at DTU Centre for Technology Entrepreneurship. In addition to the above, I have deep expertise in the area of Robust Design, Quality & Reliability Engineering, where I have many research publications, new methods and approaches. I provide industry training courses on a regular basis in the field of robust design for both international and domestic clients. I founded the Design Society Special Interest Group (SIG) in robust design & the DTU Robust Design Group and now have numerous PhD projects completed as the principle investigator in collaboration with industry. Always open for collaboration and business and am extremely good at connecting the right people together and making resources available.
