Strong system engineering (SE) background where large systems were procured. I know how to define and function in a strict SE environment. Can define creating system needed to implement complex projects, specific engineering approach to follow, breakdown and definition of tasks, project time line and budgeting.

Specialized in nuclear engineering related S/W development from technical & business requirements analysis, S/W architecture definition, solution methods selection to implementation & testing. Understanding the nuclear engineering domain is crucial.

On military projects I specialised in all facets of dynamic aircraft modelling & simulation for simulator applications, from flight-test definition, data reduction and analysis to model identification, implementation, test & qualification.

Passionate about efficiently & effectively producing, managing & delivering technical documentation according to highest standards.
