About Andrea

I am a Hardware Digital Design Engineer currently working at Nikhef (the national institute for sub-atomic physics, Amsterdam, The Netherlands). My main focus is the engineering of digital electronics systems - based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) - for Big Experiments in the field of fundamental research. I believe my broad expertise in my field of work can be used to leverage entrepreneurship in the area of support and consulting for engineering for research institutions.


Openness is the key for collaboration - myself
