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:

  • RF engineering of large deployable reflector antennas
  • RF modeling of space mission instruments

    Advanced Techniques for Grating Lobe Reduction for Large Deployable Mesh Reflector Antennas, AP-S/URSI (2017) Large Mesh Reflectors with Improved Pattern Performances, ESA Antenna Workshop (2016) 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

    Semianalytical quasi-normal mode theory for the local density of states in coupled photonic crystal cavity-waveguide structures, Opt. Lett. 40, 5790-5793 (2015) Impact of slow-light enhancement on optical propagation in active semiconductor photonic-crystal waveguides, Phys. Rev. A 92, 053839 (2015)Calculation, normalization, and perturbation of quasinormal modes in coupled cavity-waveguide systems, Opt. Lett. 39, 6359-6362 (2014)
