Currently employed at Sccopi Engineering

Previous: EPFL startup, Swiss Light Source (PSI), Swiss Electro Systems



    As senior engineer, I have over 20 year experience in R&D. Passionate by developing new Life Science apparatus, I help final user to express their technical needs and transform their ideas into functional and robust device. If customer wishes go beyond the scope of a standard machine, Sccopi Engineering begins the process of designing a special machine – a machine that is designed and built for a special area of application or work process. Ideas, requests and suggestions from customers stimulate my imagination to design and develop a first prototype then improve it so to satisfy them. New product use is according to standards and industry regulations.
