About Me

As an aspiring systems engineer with a mechatronics background, I am passionate about engineering collaboration. I have experienced first hand the drawbacks of unsuccessful collaboration among various disciplines in my previous jobs and I am focusing my PhD research towards comprehensive study of complexity in systems design and how it can be not just technical, but related to the process, the people and the tools.

I am conducting research on engineering collaboration using systems engineering approaches. For that I am doing focusing on the study of complexity in the context of systems design. By following systems engineering best practices, within my research I define the various viewpoints of the complexity problem (i.e. technical, social, process and tools). With a good problem definition it my research then defines complexity drivers and their effects, i.e. complexity challenges. Having a solid basis and terminology, will then be the foundation of my proposal of an engineering collaboration solution.
