Expert in Semiconductor Radiation, Relative Humidity, Gas Flow, Differential Pressure Sensors
Expert ID: 729707 Switzerland
Expert worked between 2007 and 2009 for Sensirion AG, a company manufacturing relative humidity, gas flow and differential pressure silicon MEMS devices as a Quality Engineer in Staefa, Switzerland. His main task consisted in investigating internal and customer's defective MEMS devices, including root cause determination of defective devices and implementation of corrective and preventive actions to the production site of the company. His work implied good understanding of sensor design and mass manufacturing processes. He contributed to yield improvement in the internal high volume production of MEMS sensors and extended the capabilities of the failure analysis tools
of the company. He also helped to make the complain handling system of the company compliant for the high demands of the automotive market.
Expert worked between 2009 and 2010 as the CEO of Sensor Center Ltd in Vantaa, Finland. The company provides technical consutling services for promising start-up companies. His main tasks consisted in fund rising activities and screening of promising concepts of sensors mostly based on silicon technology.He contributed to the creation of the first start-up company supported by Sensor Center.
