Welcome to my homepage!

I am a Danish engineer and hold a Ph.D. degree in nanophotonics. Currently, I work as research engineer in the company TICRA in Copenhagen, where I focus on R&D, analysis, and design of antennas for space applications. Recent topics and projects include:

  • Focal plane arrays for Earth observation
  • Large deployable reflector antennas
  • RF modeling of space mission instruments

    Focal plane array breadboard for advanced multiple beam Radiometer antennas, ESA Antenna Workshop (2017) Advanced Techniques for Grating Lobe Reduction for Large Deployable Mesh Reflector Antennas, AP-S/URSI (2017) Full-Wave and Multi-GTD Analysis of the Ice Cloud Imager for MetOp-SG, EuCAP (2017)

Ph.D. project and research topics

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 2015 from DTU Fotonik at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
During the Ph.D, I was a member of the Nanophotonics Theory and Signal Processing group.
Research topics included:

  • Photonic crystal cavity-waveguide structures
  • Quasi-normal modes of leaky and resonant nanophotonic systems
  • Computational techniques for nanophotonics
  • Optical properties of plasmonic nano-dimers
