Application and Practice Experience Profile

I have more than 44 years professional experience in Telecommunications, General Electronics Systems Engineering and associated project management. This involved responsibilities through all the stages of feasibility, conceptualization, design, technical- and implementation management. This included many research initiatives and practical applications. 

The relevant exposure was obtained during positions in the present academic environment, industry, extensive private practice and at a national research organization.

My particular experience profile has equipped me with the capability to evaluate and assess a wide range of technical proposals and guide high level research and development projects

with both academic and industrial objectives.

Due to many appointments as project leader, I was often required to communicate at senior level, both at government institutions and industry, local and abroad.


A shortened list of example key projects with associated personal responsibility, is presented as follows:
