A little about me
creative | detailed | energetic
fresh grad | problem solver
adapt | innovate
The most important concept I picked up at uni was the understanding of what an engineer truly does.
Many non- engineers might say they “build stuff, solve problems with hard math, and sometimes over complicate tasks”. (They’d be correct in a sense)
My interpretation of what an engineer really does is this: putting it simply, they assess and design solutions, often under the pressure of time and cost constraints, for complex systems.
Their true value comes from being able to solve or outline nearly any problem using a standard problem-solving method while allowing elements of creativity.
This is who I am: I have always enjoyed solving problems; now, I have the knowledge and tools to start as a professional.
My professional strengths are project management, process improvement, and product design.

Studying engineering taught me how to structure my problem-solving technique; studying mathematics gave me the tools to execute it.
Mathematics is about understanding the relationship between multiple quantities, using logic and abstraction.
It’s about identifying the best solution space, through both inductive and deductive reasoning.
Most importantly, it seeks to develop simple descriptions for deisred variables, allowing quantitative answers to the questions “why” and “how much?”.
While I’m curious about any branch of mathematics, I’m passionate about operations research, analysis, and control theory. I’m constantly researching these areas, trying to expand my knowledge and look for opportunities to apply it in practice. A list of my commonly used resources can be found here.
The decision to start learning how computers work was one of the best I’ve made.
I have always been a tinkerer. knowing how things work is what drives me; the more complex the system, the greater the feeling of achievement when I finally understand it. Learning to program was the next stage in my development as an engineer. Computers provide a relatively cheap way to model engineering and mathematical systems, and programming is the key to developing computers?
Finding analytical solutions to problems is extremely satisfying. Unfortunately, the set of real-world problems solvable by analytical means alone is quite small when compared with those that aren’t explicitly solvable. This is where computers shine; calculating ranges of acceptable approximate solutions is what has helped shape the world we live in.
