Student MSC Embedded Systems

University of Twente


I am a Master Embedded Systems student at the University of Twente. With my bachelor background in Electrical Engineering, I am mostly interested in the design of digital systems, and everything where hardware and software comes together. My bachelor thesis was based upon improving throughput of existing FPGA designs, and laid the basis for a publication at the 2019 ICFPT. View my course list here!

Technical Support

University of Twente (MD&I)

Dec 2018 – Feb 2019 Enschede
I assisted with the work related to the development of the data processing and control of existing Magnetic Detection Probes prototypes from the MD&I DiffMag Project. I gave insight in picking the right data acquiring equipment, developed a VHDL controller and gave a kickstart to the overal embedded system’s design together with an external hardware suplier.

Student-Job “Matlab-FPGA Application”

University of Twente (ICD)

Jul 2018 – Sep 2018 Enschede
At the Integrated Circuit Design group I worked on a demo application that implemented MATLAB/Simulink filtering models on an Altera FPGA. This was a feasibility study for further student use for the final year’s ‘design project’ of the Electrical Engineering Bachelor.
